In the early 1990s Arje Griegst returned to his lifelong fascination of the universe and created the Cosmos and Stardust series. Each work looks as if the gold has been bombarded by showers of meteorites or distant asteroids, luring us with craters filled with precious stones and gems.

COSMOS & STARDUST HISTORY
Arje Griegst used to note how “the stones talk to me”, something that can be felt in the almost primordial divinity of the Cosmos and Stardust series. Stones and gold twinkle like stars in the firmament, born from Griegst’s fascination with the groundbreaking Hubble telescope images from the 1990s and the ongoing lure of a universe in constant evolution.
