Stars begin as clouds made up of tiny particles of gas and dust. Over time, gravity compresses the atoms inside these gas clouds and causes a fusion reaction. The pressure from the gravity causes the gasses to push back with equal amounts of pressure, and eventually jets of gas erupt from the prostar, blasting the remaining gas and dust away and leaving a pure star.
‘Birth of a Star’ depicts the exact moment, just before a beautiful new star is visible. As you study the colors exploding from the center of the image, you might find yourself anticipating the moment when the gas will clear for you to see a bright, shining star. The hues of yellow peeking out from behind the deep shades of orange and blue just might be the light from the newest star, waiting for the last remnants of dust and gas to clear the pathway for its grand debut.
Every part of this gorgeous piece of wall art reflects this grand explosion. Nicholas Yust first created several beautiful grind patterns in the aluminum, which burst outward from the center to the edges. Once he had created the perfect pallet for this metal artwork, he used transparent acrylic paint to add the incredible colors, which also burst from the center in magnificent waves, reaching all the way to the outward edges of the piece. The edges of the image are darkened, depicting the black of the celestial night sky.
Whether you are a lover and collector of all astronomy art, or you are simply searching for the right piece of wall art for your home, you will be absolutely thrilled with this amazingly abstract, vibrant metallic masterpiece. A perfect addition to your favorite place to entertain, ‘Birth of a Star’ will leave your guests both delighted and intrigued.
