The celestial sea
These pieces are inspired by the numerous drawings of deep sea single-cell organisms called 'radiolaria' done by the artist and biologist, Ernst Haeckel. They are re-contextualized in the setting of outer space to set the micro organisms side-by-side with the macro bodies of our universe. Black, white, and grey were chosen in order to highlight composition and the relationship between the forms.
Materials: Micron pen and felt-tipped marker on vellum bristol paper.
