Journey: Space and time By: Joseph Partin

This gallery is a collection of my favorite pieces regarding perspective on Space and Time.  This gallery will serve as a journey through the minds of many different artists sharing their perspective on space and time.  The gallery features a mix of painting and photos in order to show the stark differences between reality and creativity.  

Mission: Apollo-Saturn 8: Earthrise, the planet Earth seen rising above the surface of the moon, by Frank Borman, James A. Lovell, and William A. Anders the first men to orbit the moon, William A. Anders, December 21, 1968 - December 27, 1968, printed c. 1991, From the collection of: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
This photo is important for its historical and artistic value. This was the first photo taken by man in space. The photo shows depth and perspective. This view shows how far these men were from the Earth.
Eclipse of the Sunflower, Paul Nash, 1945, From the collection of: British Council
This painting was created as a part of a series of paintings. This was one of the painter final two oil paintings. Instantly we can see two figures or objects. The sunflower appears to be in the right hand corner while the moon is in the bottom left hand corner. The sunflower is eclipsing the moon.
Space Invader at Les Bains, Résidence d'artistes. Special project. Photo : Stéphane Bisseuil, Space Invader, 2013, From the collection of: Museum of Street Art
This piece of street art is based off of the classic game "Space Invaders". The game was created as a "futuristic" game where you could destroy space invaders. This work of art gives a perspective of space at that period in time.
LandscapeD, Zu, Doyang, 2002, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This photo shows an amazing perspective and point of view. This photo was created by taking a night and day photo as the same location. This allowed the artist to create an image of what looks like the earth from afar. However, the image is of the sky.
Bird's Eye View of Pathfinder Landing Site, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 13-Jul-97 - 15-Jul-97, From the collection of: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
This photo is a bird's eye view of the Pathfinder landing site. This photo is incredibly interesting to me. The perspective and view that we get with this photo is amazing. The pattern of the rocks in the photo make for a interesting effect.
Doubt-Moon, Yang, Dae Won, 양대원, 2009, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
The artist uses this piece to describe his view of being a small part of a larger world. The painting uses a simple circle to depict the Moon in the background. He also uses a simple character to depict himself.
Circular forms. Sun and Moon, Robert Delaunay, 1912/1931, From the collection of: Kunsthaus Zürich
This piece was a crucial contribution to art in the early 20th century. The artist uses many different elements to create his work of art. Many shapes, patterns, and colors are used to create this perspective of the sun and moon.
Astral Dance, Bang, Hai Ja, 1987, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
The piece Astral Dance is one of my favorite in the gallery. I love the technique that the artists used in the piece. The intricacies and detail used to create this piece are obvious. The artist uses earthy toned colors to portray their perspective of an astral display.
Wandering Planet, Angel Hurtado, 1975, From the collection of: Inter-American Development Bank
The artist here creates an image of a "Wandering Planet". This image is most confusing to me. I assume that the brown circular shape is a planet. Perhaps the planet is in orbit thus making it a wandering planet.
From the collection of: Australian Museum
This paint is culturally relevant to a particular group of people. Although unsure of the people, this image depicts stars relevant to a cultural initiation. This is my favorite piece of the collection. The vibrant colors and patterns used create an amazing perspective of space.
