the apprehensive astronaut

the heavy horizontal lines you see are string –– used at first to lash the cradled wood panel to the easel, then primed and painted into the surface of the painting

the sides of this painting are decorated with found collage material –– from a Russian textbook on physics and a map of the world

If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.
― C.S. Lewis

Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.
― Marilyn Monroe
