See How: ‘Life on Venus’

Mixed Media, Year: 2020
Inspired by a discovery that caused a stir in astronomy this year, “Life on Venus" looks to a planet once thought uninhabited. As phosphine signals emanated within the planet's atmosphere in September this year, evidence of life was suggested for the very first time.
The mixed media artwork toys with the uniquely millennial obsession with astrology — our reliance on the stars and planets to make sense of everything: the pandemic, elections, our love lives. "Life on Venus" was a way to cope with the torrential terror of the year, providing a sense of comfort that there's hope (or life) beyond this.
