Jan Pieter Fokkens
Study for Tarantula Nebula

2021

$2,880

About

Entitled "Study for Tarantula Nebula," this painting by Chicago-based artist Jan Pieter Fokkens offers a representation of the gigantic star-forming region of the same name. Located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, nearly 160,000 light years from earth, it's the birthplace of an astonishing number of massive stars, some roughly 100 times the mass of the Sun. Inspired by telescope images of deep space, contemporary computer compression algorithms and early non-representational art, Fokkens recreates images that exist beyond our imagination. Done completely by hand, each work is created with the use of custom algorithms that extract qualities such as pattern, form and color. Fokkens then paints these abstracted qualities as isolated points upon the canvas. The result is a reductionist, analogue interpretation of an unimaginable digital reality. Framed. Acrylic on canvas.
