Ecliptic Glow (private collection)
oil on panel
8 x 8 inches
Seen through a convex lens, the reverse of how we normally see the stars, this view of the primeval constellations “attached” to their decan constellations glows where the line of the ecliptic (the path of the sun) would normally appear. As we now know from pictures seen through Hubble’s lens, there is an amazing amount of color occurring out in space. Ecliptic Glow acknowledges that while depicting the star groups in relationship with each other.
Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?
