Artist's description:

Anna started working with photographic images of thin sections of the meteorites under cross-polarised light showing their complex mineral and crystal composition to create the abstract canvases that are in fact firmly routed in the natural world around us.

The two books that provided food for though and initial visual inspiration were Living With the Stars: How the Human Body Is Connected to the Life Cycles of the Earth, the Planets, and the Stars, written by astrophysicist Karel Schrijver, a senior fellow at the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, and his wife, Iris Schrijver, professor of pathology at Stanford University, and Meteorites by Caroline Smith, Sara Russell and Gretchen Benedix published by Natural History Museum.

Anna says: "Reading about how 40,000 tons of Cosmic Dust falling to Earth each year affects us, how it becomes part of the ecosystem that is our body and knowing that each of us carries elements made in the furnaces of stars made me think of the place of a person in the scale of the Universe and of Randian characters, exemplifying ethical egoism, morally heroic and heroically rational, proud to be alive, to be human, to be part of the world..." A strong and beautiful human body became a natural progression to the series.
