Pascal Lee, Except Europa

About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Our rocketship had come to rest on a narrow “linea” on Jupiter's icy moon, Europa. Unbeknownst to the crew, an enormous creature lurked under the ice. In Arthur C. Clarke's sci-fi novel 2010: ODYSSEY TWO, humanity had been warned: "All these worlds are yours. Except Europa. Attempt no landing there." But sure enough, we had to land there. Big mistake.,. Is there life on Europa? Underneath its fractured 20 km thick H2O ice crust lies an abyssal ocean 100 km deep. 100 km! Earth's Mariana Trench is only 11 km deep. I wonder what might be living inside Europa… Signed in the front at lower right and in the back. Artist’s label affixed to the back. Lateral edges are painted in continuation of the landscape. Top and bottom edges are painted black. Unframed.

I am a planetary scientist who loves to draw and paint. My artwork is about space and time, and our tiny yet hopeful place in their vastness. I draw and paint about our distant past, events we've survived, our profound cosmic loneliness, and where we might go from here. 

Mars is the challenge of our time. Humans going to Mars will be greatest adventure in space exploration this century. Beyond Mars, we will journey to Saturn's moon, Titan, and one day, to the stars and deep into spacetime.

I have in my garage a primitive spacetime machine in which I can, at considerable risk, visit distant worlds and other epochs. My artwork is the travel log.
