About the artwork

At a time of spatial conquest with spacecraft sent into space or telescopes fitted with cameras, whose mysterious and spectacular images regularly make the front pages of the media, it may seem surprising to undertake astrophotographic work. Midway between art and science, Andrew McCarthy’s photography practice allows the stars to be studied with exceptional technological refinement, phenomenal resolutions and sensitivity levels. This image plays on contrasts by exaggerating the subtle colouration of the moon’s surface, known as regolith and produced by the degradation of the bedrock due to the impact of meteorites and wind. These impacts, occuring for billions of years, cause the rock to melt, transforming them into glass then reducing them to powder.
