Deep Sky Kelly
Los Alamos, New Mexico
My mission as an artist is to explore and illustrate deep skies and long horizons. Looking up, looking out--orienting ourselves within a landscape of light and time, of matter and imagination--we find the cosmos looking back, compelling us forward into a search for understanding, meaning, and wonder. My work is evolving. Some of it is done in pen and pencil, some on paper, some on wood and metal, and some in layers of digital shapes. Some drawings are meant to illustrate a real place or astronomical event, while others are purely imagined. Within all of my work is the hope that we will continue to observe and investigate--that we will look deeply, and for a very long time.
