Artist's Description

Turning the pages of the Atlas, you are confronted by an image of… a flower. It’s a strange sort of flower admittedly, seemingly defended by a cage of spikes. Also, you’re not sure what’s going on in the background. There also seem to be little electrical discharges going on overall… But still, it’s just a flower unmalevolently sitting there being pretty. There aren’t even any bees. After all the strange plates you’ve seen in the Atlas, this is such a nice change that you consider just leaving the bookmark here and curtailing your explorations. Still, curiosity will probably trump the possibility of disturbing dreams…

“Color Plate 130” combines a photograph from stock.xchng member “hummel_12”:http://www.sxc.hu/profile/hummel_12 and a painting created by my father, Gus Maier.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project that began in 1999. Each plate is composed of several different images combined to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Complex borders around the images fade them into a white background. Source images include 19th century engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, astronomical photos of space and planetary surfaces, the paintings of my father, Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused. Watch out for stray critters…
