Artist's Description

As you turn the page, you see an image of an odd-looking lizard climbing a tree. Is it aware of your attention? If you look away from the Atlas for a moment, will your eyes return to find the lizard slightly higher up the trunk? In all probability, every second of this reptile’s journey up a tree is recorded in the Atlas, but finding those few pages in its immensity is extremely unlikely.

“Color Plate 131” combines a photograph from stock.xchng member “Aaron Murphy”:http://www.sxc.hu/profile/a51media 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…
