Was really nervous doing this. It is what it is, my first ever (proper) video blog.
As promised in the video here is the link to-
This oil on canvas painting was commissioned by the University College London's Department of Physics and Astronomy for the new Cosmoparticle Hub, where it will remain on permanent display.
Incorporating concepts from research into dark matter, background cosmic microwaves, galaxies and more, Cosmoparticle was created over five months in consultation with astrophysicist Prof Hiranya Peiris, high energy physicist Dr Chamkaur Ghag, and cosmologist Dr Andrew Pontzen who all provided visual information, verbal explanation, and ongoing inspiration.

After painting the beging of dark matter filaments for the UCL commission I sat down last night and drew a traditional portrait that I will be creating in oils soon for one of classes my classes that I teach @valecourse. I may use this one or not I have not decided yet.
Dark matter filaments stretch out through the universe, today I am in the middle of mapping them out. More layering will proceed after this. For now I will be leaving these layers to dry out. I will bed pulling the blue of galaxies back through and weave the dark matter filaments into the the blue.
Canvas unwrapped, now stepping into the cosmos.
For information on some of the physics that is influencing this commission for UCL go to the video below this one of me in the stages....
Hiranya Peiris gives a wonderful talk on Cosmology from Galileo to Gravitational Waves (GW). GW was detected in 2015 by LIGO I created an artwork about this too here is a video I made that accompanies that artwork for Cardiff University Physics Department 2016.
