Biography from Tucson Museum of Art:
Stan Gaz works in photography, sculpture, film, and performance art.  Raised in the high desert near Joshua Tree, California, Gaz moved to New York in 1989.  In 2009, he created the series Impact, based on a long fascination with meteorite craters and their sacred importance to various tribal communities.

Created at the same time, Self Portrait (Star Traveler with String Theory Scepter, 2009, is a reflection on childhood issues about family stability and memory.  In this photograph, the artist dons an astronaut suit.  To Gaz, “The suit represents a cocoon in the way that it speaks about memory, mortality, and fragility. It makes me feel that when I come out of the suit I will be different. I will be changed by the journey and understand my past in ways unlike before.”

He holds one of his sculptures, an integral part of his projects, inspired by physicist Leonard Susskind’s writing and his experiences during the impact sites project.
