Piece description from the artist
"Voyage to Cascadia" Another addition to my illustrative series "Among The Stars"
Cascadia, a world very much like our own. Nestled safely in a nebula, obscured from view, isolated from the wider galaxy.
A young world still enveloped by the safety of the stellar nursery that birthed it, never the less already teaming with life.
As we look down upon this Eden, could there be curious eyes looking up at the visitor to their skies.
Or perhaps there is a reason this world is hidden, The cosmos holds wonders beyond imagination, but nature is capable of horrors that could freeze our souls.
Are we ready for what awaits us in the void?
The inspiration for this piece was simply a feeling of uncertainty, brought on by observing the stars. I was entranced by what could be out there, and what secrets are obscured from us, limited by the technology of our time so much of existence is beyond our reach. But then, perhaps we are better off. Maybe some secrets are better off unknown. That is the risk of exploration, what is discovered is not easily hidden. We may not always like what we find.
