Artwork by Leonie Connellan.

Leonie Connellan is a print-based artist from Melbourne, Australia. Her current work explores the relationship between the physical sciences of the universe and how we find our place in it through storytelling — the interweaving of fact and fiction to create a comprehensive understanding of the whole. She explores the role of the night sky in storytelling, and how we use the latter to build on the knowledge of our existence, with the ultimate goal of instilling a sense of scientific understanding, wonder and curiosity about the structure of the universe and our place in it.

Seeing Stars

I'm very excited to announce that I've had three works listed as finalists in the SKA Seeing Stars Art Prize!

The SKA (Square Kilometre Array) is a radio telescope being built in Australia and South Africa to help astronomers learn about the evolution of stars and galaxies. The SKA Seeing Stars exhibition will open on August 13 at Yarra Gallery in Federation Square, then run from August 14-19. Hopefully you can make it along.

There's also a People's Choice Award, and you can vote here.
