Artist's Description

Gazing in awe at this celestially illuminated landscape, your thoughts again circle around the question of what the Atlas shows as never before. If an actual event is depicted in this plate, it might be relatively benign – just pretty lights in the sky. After all, that tree still looks healthy… but if what you’re seeing is one of those cataclysms that planet Earth occasionally endures, what then? Are you being shown a real event from the past or future? A possible past, present, or future? Or just an image, created or revealed by the Atlas for inscrutable reasons?

“Color Plate 171” combines a photograph from deviantART member Martina Rathgens 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…
