Vignettes - Tales from Above

2016-ongoing


The images in this series elaborate on the myths and legends of the constellations by giving them life through visual interpretation. The inspiration for these images are the constellation legends that run through many different cultures including the Chinese, Indian, and Greek myths. I am fascinated with how stories get passed down through generations and eventually take on different meanings and interpretations based on who is telling them, why, and in what context. These vignettes are my interpretations from the stories of the stars. Prints are handprinted by the artist. They are tiered in price by edition number, approximately 7x9” Edition of 9 with 3 AP. Prints are signed, dated, editioned, and titled on print recto.
