Celestia (Lost Stars) 8000x
Mixed media on board | 2022
Sparked by a string of summer evening storms, “Celestia” explores the infinite possibility of what we cannot see. The new series by Alison Cooley prompts questions of what happens when we aren’t observing or unable to observe—what does the sky look like when we are asleep? What is the shape beneath ice? Collectively, the works consider what lies beyond the immediate living world and imagines an uncharted environment. Born through a meditative process that now involves creating art in the outdoors, they are an evolution of Cooley’s meditative oeuvre, representing contemplations on releasing control and allowing the mysterious to emerge.
