Space and Science art
From Kastalia Medrano's FABULOUS article in The Paris Review (https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2017/09/14/the-art-of-space-art/) "Humans have always been able to imagine more for ourselves than we can achieve, and this idealism lends a touch of heartache to space art. We can picture the world that could exist, the lives we could be having. But the exploration of space isn’t an empty daydream—it’s an actionable one. In recent months, faced with grim news about climate change and the National Endowments for the arts and humanities, I’ve found myself drawn to paintings of exoplanets and neighboring stars and other places I’ve never seen. On a purely aesthetic level, I like looking at images designed to foster a sense of wonder, divorced in part from fact. Space art is utopian, in a way: it chooses to believe a planet is rock and not gas just because we’d like to visit it someday. In its imagination and innovation, it asks us to envision the world on a much grander scale than we normally choose to do—and to retain a certain faith in the engine of discovery, no matter what’s happening on Earth. As Ramer wrote to me: “The stars are still there, waiting.”"
