Cosmogonal Daydream

Cosmogonal Daydream
4 1/8" x 6 9/16"
Ink on Book Page
This artwork is SOLD.
This is an intricately detailed ink drawing done on an antique book page. The page is from a chapter titled "The Spectrum of a Star" from a book called "The Stars", published in 1927. The book page is slightly yellowed - I'm not sure how well that shows in this scan. The abstract forms of this drawing are elegant and flowing, referencing chimerical organic forms. I like the way the forms cover the words on the page, creating a tension between linear thinking and fanciful forms.
