Moon Maker (2018)
A3 in size - Magazine / book collage.
Only available as an original piece (on mountboard, in a white mount and a black frame).
This new 'Moon Maker' collage came off the back of an image of an ancient Greek helmet I found. I wanted something that acted as a vague follow up to my 'Ye Gods' and 'The Scintillation' collage but also tapped into themes of creation and the unknown, and the helmet seemed the perfect starting place. All the cuttings once again come from a series of books that explore the universe, science fiction and ancient cultures and civilizations, as well as a couple of smaller images from an old antiques encyclopaedia. As with, 'Ye Gods' and 'The Scintillation' I wanted to position the collage with the main points of interest on either side of the piece - something the drags the eyes a little and pulls you in to check out the detail.
