Adrift


With the news currently flooded with the news of Osama bin Laden's death, it would be a good breather to feature something different. Finishing off the first part of this blog's first astronomy series is a post that features neither a photograph nor a photographer. Instead, it's an amazing piece of artwork from a very talented artist.

This beautiful art print is entitled Adrift and is by artist Jeremy Geddes. This is the latest in his series of cosmonaut-themed paintings, although he also does other superb photo-realistic paintings as well.

This particular painting definitely bears some resemblance to the spacewalk photograph that was previously featured, although the message here may be a bit more morbid. Still, it is a spectacular image.

Catch more of Jeremy Geddes' artworks over at his website.

It's hard to create a narrative for this one. I suppose the only way it makes sense is if the bird was frozen and just bounced off the astronauts face shield.

Without a narrative it's kind of a silly painting.

Hey Jay, This is really cool, I was always one of those kids growing up not into Space, but I loved looking at the stars. I think this would be such a cool peaceful painting to have hanging in my house. Nice post

Solsby Kid said...

Amazing pic!

Andrew said...

It looks like there should be a space horse beneath him, but maybe he's been cloaked? You have to drop your shields to cloak though, that's probably why the bird has gotten so close to him.

Very interesting.

Patti D. said...

it's amazing, there are people truly skilled.

Electric Addict said...

dead astronaut but the bird is alive? I'm confused what message I'm supposed to perceive. Does it relate to the bible (Noah's Ark?)
