From the Chauvet Cave Paintings of 30,000 years ago to the prehistoric zodiac created in the Nasca Lines in Peru, science and art have been forever linked by those that seek to discover. Throughout the recorded history on man, art has been used to record astronomical events and major scientific breakthroughs. Present day researchers have discovered that the Egyptian Pyramids at Giza are in fact perfectly aligned with the constellation Orion. Both Mars and Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, have been visited by amazing “Earthling” probes. Images depicting scientific discovery become instant masterpieces created from a palette of nuts, bolts and technology.
“The View from Dione” is a collection of modern day art depicting our knowledge of science as expressed by and through our love of art. It has always been my belief that artist and scientist pursue a common goal, discovery and expression.
