An Inner Astronomy
In her solo exhibit, “An Inner Astronomy,” Catherine Nash created a vintage inspired, imaginary artist/astronomer’s lab replete with mixed media painted celestial maps, encaustic monoprints and sculptural assemblage works. “Through time, humankind has sought to explain and fathom the mystery of our being: in these bodies, on this planet, in this galaxy through mathematics and science and religion. My studies in archeo-astronomy – the exploration of how varied cultures have explained the mysteries of the stars and sky through mapping, symbols and myth – as well as my own dreaming and explorations have informed this work. “An Inner Astronomy” harkens back to an early Renaissance interpretation – to a time before philosophy, spirituality and art were divorced from science and mathematics,” states Catherine.
