Scientists and Heretics: A Memorial

Jay Constantine's avatar Jay Constantine

My most recent work examines conflicts between science and religion. "Scientists and Heretics" is meant to be a memorial for the those free-thinkers and scientists who encountered religious persecution for their ideas. I have included astronomical imagery in the work because many of the individuals represented were involved with astronomy and because moon phases and eclipses can be viewed as omens as well as symbols of change and transition which seemed appropriate for the individuals depicted in the painting.
