McCarthy Gallery is pleased to present a series of exhibitions featuring our stable of gallery artists, curated artworks and mini doco series, as well as collaborations with our patrons, partners, and collectors.
Sheyne’s recent artworks fuse the captivating aesthetics of oceanic micro-organisms with the timeless deep field vistas from the Hubble Space Telescope. This exploration of astronomy serves as a mirror to contemplate our own identity in the cosmos.
Our essential connection to celestial bodies becomes evident in our shared atomic makeup with the Sun and stars. Elements like oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and carbon unite us with the cosmos, quite literally composing our beings from stardust.
Hubble’s deep field images have revolutionized our perception of our place in the universe. Initially deemed extravagant, these works now stand as a testament to our cosmic interconnectedness, reshaping our understanding of existence.
Likewise, oceanic plankton, as micro-organisms, wield immense significance in Earth’s food chain and atmospheric balance. Upon examination, their composition mirrors the galaxies captured by Hubble, underscoring a shared origin between the vast and the minuscule.
