Martian Winter  2 by Richard Maier

Currently unavailable for purchase


The “Martian Winter” series is one that took a while to reach fruition. I originally started playing with HiRISE photos of Mars from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in the Fall of 2012. I experimented with many different photos, mostly processing them through Photoshop and the FilterForge plug-in Your Fractal Art . I created many interesting images, but nothing that hung together as a series, so I regretfully shelved these experiments, though I didn’t forget about them. A year later, as I began to contemplate a 2013 Winter series, I came across those experiments again. One of them caught my eye as having the right color palette for a Winter series, so I fired up Filter Forge once again and subjected one particular photo of Mars to a great deal of abuse from a particular Filter Forge filter. The results were wonderful, so I brought them into Photoshop again to apply the finishing touches.

While having a strong background in photography and traditional printmaking, Richard Maier has mostly worked as a digital artist since the mid-90’s. His abstract and non-representational work tends toward a lush color palette and stark design, often filtered through the lens of chaos and noise. The natural world, as both the microcosm of biology and the macrocosm of space, is his favorite subject matter. He strives to create art that is both visually pleasing and intellectually fascinating.
