Red shift

Red shift

Red and blue shift of an imaginary spiral galaxy, fantasy image.

I built the dust rings with texture paste for days (it was a good experience), so that I could spray the two dominant colours, red and blue, from a flat angle. At the same time, I tried to achieve an effect that was pleasing to the eye in itself, because the original idea would only really work if the image itself was in motion or the position of the viewer changed – which can be achieved with the vertical suspension, but then it would look weird from the eye. 🙂

I have done a lot of small dioramas with this technique and it is very effective. I’ll keep experimenting with the larger ones. 🙂

30×60 cm stretched canvas, acrylic, structure paste, various techniques.

In addition to new ideas I decided to finish the paintings I had started so far. 😊
I started this image in May 2018, the shade of blue in the background has changed since then, but the idea of Voyager has remained the same throughout.

The Voyager 1 and 2 space probes were built for a five-year lifetime. Voyager 2 was launched on 20th of August in 1977, 16 days before Voyager 1, and both have now reached well beyond their original destinations, with Voyager 2 becoming the only spacecraft to have studied all four gas giants of the Solar System at close range. Voyager 2 is in 45th year, 5th month and 22nd day of its mission, and travelling 19 930 968 333 km from Earth at a speed of 55 347 km/h through the interstellar space.
