Halo (private collection)
oil on panel
31 x 31 inches
As the Earth rotates around our sun the twelve major zodiacal constellations beyond our orbit appear to hold their pattern relative to our sun, displaying themselves for all parts of the Earth to see. Halo also makes subtle reference to the heliosphere, the bubble-like area surrounding our solar system which protects us from damaging cosmic rays.
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?
