2023 A Space Oddity

2023 A Space Oddity

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
Carl Sagan

The variety of nature never ceases to amaze me as I explore the species that call this pale blue dot home. I’m fascinated by the variety of the species in nature and the story of how the atoms that create every one of them has traveled through space and time to reside with us here for this brief period of time. 

In 2020 I began to make Space Oddity editions as a way of testing new approaches and methods, helping me to ensure that none of the precious specimens I work with went to waste. This process turned into a project to create a piece per week to form a collection of 52 editions made over 12 months through 2022 into 2023.

A collection of 52 editions made from a variety of specimens from around the world. 2023 A Space Oddity will be exhibited as a complete collection for the first time with Patrick Jones Gallery in Dallas from late October. 

More than 52 varied species including Beetles, Moths, Butterflies, Damselflies and many more…

Further varied editions available on commission, email me on hello@fionaparkinson.com for more details
