AlizeyKhan's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Born 1990 in Farnborough, Kent, UK. Raised in Redbourn, Hertfordshire, UK; relocated to Karachi, Pakistan in 2002. Relocated to Greenville, South Carolina, USA in 2005. Currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

The properties of light and spatial depth are the focus of my work, using thinly layered colours to convey a sense of spatial vastness. To this end, I paint astronomical phenomena, which allow for the greatest exploration of light in an incomprehensibly vast space. I strive to visually depict natural processes beyond ordinary human experience to instil in the viewer a sense of curiosity and wonder regarding the universe around us. I am a member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA).

I am drawn to the imagery of space for its incomprehensibly vast beauty and the challenge of attempting to capture the depth and scale inherent in astrophotographic images. I refer to as much relevant scientific data and imagery that I can find when creating these images; I feel that when it comes to the beauty of outer space, nothing I could invent could possibly rival what already exists. The breadth of scientific knowledge behind each phenomena I paint interests me greatly; I like to research the astronomical objects while painting them to fully understand the processes involved in what I am depicting to convey them accurately.
