About Anne Marchand
The work is inspired by images that come from Hubble and other space probes. Science with its technological advances gave mankind the ability to see what was previously unseen. With new information, patterns are reveled that occur in the macrocosm and in the microcosm, in space and in the space of our bodies. These intersections convince we are linked with the universe, created from the same materials. Mystical poetry mingles in these compositions to create a hybrid visual language.
