I’m working on a series of intaglio etchings called “Space Tourist”- essentially science fiction of people in impossibly ergonomic space-suits floating and gazing upon faraway objects, like planets and galaxies. All an impossibility right now, of course. I made the figures elongated and Giacometti-like because studies have shown that astronauts grow taller while in space due to the compression of gravity on the spine.
Here’s the first one so far, “Space Tourist 1: Saturn”, second state. It’s in the fourth state now so I’ll update this with pics when it’s done. The figure is next to Saturn’s moon Tethys, with Mimas and Enceladus visible in the foreground and Saturn looming in the background.
Excuse the phone picture; I usually don’t take high-resolution pictures of my work until it’s finished. (My real camera’s too bulky to take to the studio every day)
