Thomas Broadbent's paintings, installations, and sculptural depictions of celestial bodies and artifacts from space exploration show his impeccable perception in the detail within his true-to-life renderings of these objects. Broadbent's installations and paintings often present an attitude of memorializing an event or celestial discovery. Asteroids and planetary bodies are presented in an inverted view of outer space, as the infinite darkness often associated with deep space is displaced by a white, luminous, ground. Thomas Broadbent infuses artifacts from space travel with the enthusiasm and excitement of discovery, and presents them with a level of reverence. This collection encompasses the current availability of Space Exploration themed works by Thomas Broadbent.
