Artist's description:

Flow is part of the Patterns of Stardust series of paintings that draw inspiration from the scientific study of meteorites, interstellar dust and presolar grains exploring our interconnectedness with the universe (not in the metaphysical sense but through actual physical matter).

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.

Photographic images of thin sections of the meteorites under cross-polarised light showing their complex mineral and crystal composition provide the point of departure for the abstract canvases that are in fact firmly routed in the natural world around us.

We are impermanent, transient and ever changing. Very little of our bodies lasts a lifetime. All our cells are being constantly replaced. 'What survives this replacement is a shape, a pattern, a temporary collection of matter and energy assembled into a host of specific recognisable attributes that persist'... from Living With The Stars.
We are a pattern with a constant flow of matter all of which originated from Stardust.
