My deep interest in cosmology led to this series of drawings. These pieces are an exploration into concepts that range from the microcosm to the macrocosm, from quantum mechanics to relativity and from singularity to infinity. Such dichotomies are part of a whole and it is the limitations of our perception that create borders, separating and categorizing them. Through these drawings I am striving to clear these artificial borders and level with these “fuzzy areas” in an effort to better understand how these principles relate.
