In this series I imagined places where the earth fuses into space. I was inspired by the vastness and variety of the world, and by the knowledge that we live a very short time in an unlimited universe. I like to think there is no end in the atmosphere, but a continuity of other dimensions. Space becomes abstract, depth is vertiginous, and colors are ambiguous.
The “Space” Portfolios
I painted with watercolor pigments on large sheets of film transparency. It allowed me to dilute and spray liquids, and to play with the fluidity of the materials. Later I printed the monoprints on an etching press with dampened paper.
I combined photos from NASA with my own images. I created earthly landscapes I photographed in Arizona and Utah, into the atmosphere. (Digital Prints, Available in Various Sizes, Price on Request.)
