Artist's Description

The mushroom throne, just waiting for someone to sit on it…

“Color Plate 49” combines a photograph from stock.xchng member yarranz 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 dragonflies are taken from The Complete Encyclopedia Of Illustration by J.G. Heck.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project begun in 1999. Each ‘plate’ is composed of several different images layered to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Tangled white borders erode the edges of the plates. Source images may include – though aren’t limited to: period engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, NASA photos, and the paintings of my father, Gus Maier. Keep an eye out for stray creatures poking and prodding at the fourth wall, and remember to bookmark your place before you close the Atlas and lock it for the night…
