Frederic Chopin published 18 nocturnes during his lifetime. It’s fascinating that the birth of this musical genre closely coincided with the earliest astrophotography. By increasing exposure times on photographic plates, stars and nebulae invisible to the human eye could be recorded for the first time, opening up complete new ways of understanding and looking at reality. The artist’s series of paintings explore the relationship between early astrophotography and the Nocturnes by Chopin
