Gemini 4: Tango of Subzero Moons

This large oil painting is another exploration of Chaos and Order. The piece can be displayed in either horizontal direction.
White or grey astronaut can be upright on the right side. My better tiitles were created by poet friends. This one was originally titled “Astronauts Ponder the Barren Silence of Subzero Moons”. I have collaborated with a few different poets on ekphrastic endeavors – they write about my paintings and I create a piece in response to their poetry. Resulting in great title generators. The tethers here were later adopted into a piece I did exploring DNA. I see some expressionist influences.
