Artist's Description

Strange white tendrils writhe across your view of this strangely-colored forest. You suppose the Atlas could be showing you an alien vista, but you are reminded of the radioactive “red forest” surrounding Chernobyl instead.

“The Atlas of Dreams – Color Plate 24” combines a photograph from an unknown stock.xchng photographer with a painting created by my father, Gus Maier and an engraving from The Complete Encyclopedia Of Illustration by J.G. Heck. The border was created with Photoshop brushes and filters applied to my father’s painting. This is the 2015 remix.

“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 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…
