About The Artwork:

"Reformation" is a surreal black-and-white illustration that captures the beauty of transformation. In this piece, a twig slowly transforms into a feather in front of a vast galaxy backdrop. The artwork speaks to the power and potential of change, making it perfect for any wall or collection.

A stick or twig may represent simplicity, versatility, and adaptability, as it is an essential tool that can be used for various purposes. It can also symbolize strength and resilience, as sticks are often used as walking aids and can support a person's weight. In some cultures, sticks are used in spiritual practices and represent power, authority, and connection to the divine.

Feathers often represent freedom, spirituality, and transcendence, as they are associated with birds that can fly and reach great heights. Feathers can also symbolize protection, as birds use their feathers for insulation and to protect themselves from the elements. In some cultures, feathers are used in rituals and ceremonies to communicate with the divine or as a symbol of the divine.

A galaxy can represent the vast and infinite nature of the universe. It is a symbol of the unknown and the mysteries of the cosmos. The stars within a galaxy can represent individual souls or elements of creation. In contrast, the swirling arms and patterns of the universe itself can symbolize the cyclical nature of existence and the interconnectedness of all things. The galaxy can also represent life's journey, with its various twists and turns and the idea that everything is in a constant state of movement and transformation. As a symbol, the galaxy can inspire a sense of wonder, awe, and contemplation of the universe's great mysteries.

The artwork could be interpreted as a message of hope, indicating that even the most humble beginnings can lead to significant and beautiful things and that growth and transformation are part of the universe's natural order.

"Nothing ever really goes away — it just changes into something else. Something beautiful." ― Sarah Ockler
