In the Night Sky
These five works are a combination of two different ideas, my interest in astronomy and astrology, as well as the random nature of gender assignment and their associated symbols. Here I do an artistic, interpretive mash-up of astrological and gender symbols against the starry night sky.
I tend to create my work first and look for meaning after. In this way the thoughts, or over thinking, won’t get in the way. Instead, as I create the pieces, the idea of their meaning starts to develop, then I continue to move in that direction. Hopefully then, the ideas and image solidifies in what ends up being the final work.
