Dark Matter comes from a search for the unknown, an endless quest for the unseen. A desire to keep looking and listening.
Dark Matter is an escape, a force that holds earth together, yet - unidentified. Without it, there wouldn't be us - stars or galaxies.
Dark Matter bends light.
Dark Matter affects gravity.
Dark Matter is you.
Dark Matter is me.
When I do a print, I want the final work to be a better representation of the original form. This takes that idea two steps beyond. Seldom will you see a print that does that, this looks like the paper was printed around the physical form. Perfect.
