oil on panel
14 x 28 inches
At the start of painting this body of work came this piece which feels both like a chart and like the night sky as it shifts from late dusk into night. Taking a traditional celestial map approach to charting the north and south celestial hemispheres, included here are the original forty-eight constellations and the Milky Way as it spirals through space.
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?
