Artist's Description

This stock image just did not want to work with me… I probably tried to use it in the “Atlas” at least twice previously without success. This time however, my father’s painting provided the needed foil – shapes and colors in the stock image are echoed in his artwork and the whole work is thus knitted together.

“Color Plate 59” combines a photograph from stock.xchng member Jeff Hire 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…
