This piece, created in 2021, blends a sunset into a starry galaxy, as the body of water below weaves between mountain and island forms. Rocks and snow in the foreground give the viewer the sense of being the main character standing inside this scene. The sun is similarly sized to the stars in the galaxy sky, invoking a sense of vastness, which the title also suggests.
