The Atlas Of Dreams - Color Plate 63 by 

Color Plate 63 combines a photograph from stock.xchng member Half Orc with a ‘blow art painting’ created by my father, Gus Maier. The frame is derived from one of my friend Brad Hitz’s Deterioration series of darkroom paintings.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project started in 1999. Each ‘plate’ is composed of several different images combined to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Source images include historic engravings, NASA photos of space and the Earth’s surface, abstract images, the artwork of my father: Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused. Watch out for stray butterflies, fish, snakes, and other animals…

Digital artist since 1993.

    Wonderful and unusual work! The colours, shapes (first thing I saw was a swordfish leaping out of the sea) but most of all the transparency and luminosity, and fading out at the edges.

  • Thanks Alison, for your insightful and descriptive critique. I’m glad you liked it!
