The titles featured in this gallery are available as Giclee prints. Giclee prints are digitally produced art, printed on canvas or paper using archival quality materials for many years of fade-free enjoyment. Paper offers a smooth finish while canvas is textured to appear similar to an actual painting. All Giclee prints are signed and have a minimum 2" white border on all sides.
Jon Lomberg is an artist from Hawaii who is known worldwide for his visualizations of cosmic events. He was Emmy Award winning Chief Artist for Carl Sagan's classic TV series, COSMOS. His Portrait of the Milky Way is the most accurate view of our galaxy ever painted. It was on display for ten years at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum and is now part of their permanent collection of aviation and space art. Comes with detailed explanation and finder chart.
Glowing gas clouds, called nebulae, are envisioned here as flowers against a dark tracery of dust. Young stars grow in these nebulae and burst free, like seeds spreading through the galaxy. Eventually the stars release much of their constituent gasses back into space, to form a new generation of "starflowers".
Young stars burst forth from a nebula, like seeds spreading through the galaxy. Just as seeds grow flowers that make more seeds, nebulae form stars that eventually form new nebulae. Cosmic cycles of life and death are apparent at all scales.
This painting was the inspiration for the dandelion motif that runs through the TV series COSMOS. Carl Sagan did not want his "spaceship of the imagination" to have a realistic, technological feel, and this painting brought forth the idea that the spaceship, when seen from outside, resembled a seed, blowing through the cosmos.
In the far future, a starship travels through the clouds of a nebula. The starship has been grown rather than constructed, using the DNA of an auger seashell as a design template.
A view of the sunset over the rugged martian landscape. The Earth and Moon become a double "evening star" in the dusty twilight.
