Galaxy Art Created with Passion
“Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
~ Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
In a way, nature is a fine artist itself
This galaxy art print features an emission nebula within the Milky Way. The center holds strong stellar winds along with a cluster of young stars having circumstellar disks. The older stars can be found at the periphery. It appears as if a flame is billowing, as magnificent as it can be, brightening the dark sky around it. Every nebula is unique and beautiful in its own way. No two are quite the same, creating an enchanting mystery for astronomers as they canvas the night sky.
Its presence reminds us of the intensely burning passions within each human being. The flames of desire that make us alive psychologically. Without them, humans are much like walking corpses, surviving but without a purpose. These passions motivate us to be creative to come up with something better and pushing us to achieve something we take pride in.
Putting your life goals on your children will not help them grow.
To help their kids outsmart the competitors, helicopter parents often pressure their former into getting stellar grades on every exam. The kids aren’t even given the choice of opting out of. These children are nudged into making winning a passion. Enjoying the process of acquiring knowledge and skills or spending time with friends is nothing more than a joke. Those who cannot withstand such pressure will give up, losing their individuality and quality of life. Those who make it fare no better, leading a life where winning is tantamount to climbing to the very top of the social ladder. Achieving that luxurious lifestyle even if it means surrendering their moral compass. How do humans without passion inspire younger generations to enjoy working when they fail to do so?
It is hard to imagine how technology could progress without the existence of passionate innovators. The advent of modern electrical appliances has made it possible for humans to live comfortably. Who could have imagined that it could enable humans to lead quality lives when compared to their predecessors only a few centuries ago? It’s hard to know what exactly motivates each innovator to come up with these groundbreaking ideas that shake the world in the centuries to come. Without the concerted efforts of these innovators, development in all areas would be slow, if not stunted completely. Worse yet, if these innovators were barred from doing so, it would be impossible for humans in this decade to do things with just a “click” on the cell phones.
No one can ascertain whether the public will take the innovations seriously before they come into existence.
Being a trend setter, much like creating galaxy art, involves taking risks. Innovators have never been daunted by the unforeseen circumstances ahead. Instead, they continue to fine-tune their products until they meet their standards. Passion must be a driving force, motivating them to work harder on what they excel at while ignoring the atrocious and belittling remarks. These individuals would not want to live life as mere followers. They wanted to be the participants in coming up with new products which can change the lifestyles of other human beings in the generations to come. They are destined to take matters into their own hands. What sets the leaders apart from the workers is that a leader knows exactly what they want. They are passionate about achieving their goals and will do whatever they deem necessary to achieve them.
While the majority is following the trend these particular trendsetters have chosen to live on the other side of the tracks. They blaze the trails for other humans who may be equally passionate about life. The Impressionist painters in France refused to kowtow to the established rules. Together they caused the tables to turn merely by standing their ground.
Money or a promising future cannot buy passion. It’s either there or not there.
When I was young, I thought that everyone would eventually find a job they loved, but the reality proved to be different.
Not knowing which direction they want to head, most people take jobs just to make a living and refuse to spend time honing their skills. Meanwhile, those who know what they want in their careers would continue polishing their skills and become the masters of their trade.
The choice of leading a satisfying life lies in our own hands.
If you have dreams, go after them. Do what is required to make them come true! Humans aren’t made to settle for things we have no interest in; we are creative and complex creatures with intensely burning desires we need to fuel! As an artist, my passion lies in sharing my astro-photography and galaxy art with my collectors all over the world.
Fine art is by no means static. My ideal exhibition is a place where everyone can all be inspired by the grandeur of nature. I don’t have a timetable for my 3rd exhibition at the moment, but it will certainly exceed the gallerists’ expectations (and my own). It would be contrary to my intention in creating these galaxy art prints, which are only intended to be displayed on walls, such as those at art fairs.
I am carrying the wind of change in the fine arts. Hold your breath!
My galaxy art can demonstrate my passion through inked versions of my personal paintings. Each original painting has a message behind it. They are then made into museum-quality prints, my goal being to get my messages across to more people. Could my galaxy art inspire these people to create a breakthrough and seek more fulfilling jobs?
The world is devoid of inspirational figures who strive to make their passions come true and whom people look up to. Why not make one of them your own?
