Title: “ELECTRIC ORB, V.3, EDIT S.”
Series: OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES.
SERIES YEARS: 2001 TO PRESENT.
SERIES NOTE / ARTIST’S STATEMENT: OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES is a mixed-media art series that I started in 2001. This series has continued in a slow progression over the years, and will continue into the future. Various art elements make up each image in this series. ALL of the art pieces involve Photography. However, all of them also include other mediums, such as painting, sketching, sculpture, natural objects, natural and artificial lighting, and computer digital art.
SERIES MOTIVATIONS – INFLUENCES: The inspiration for these art pieces usually comes from short science fiction stories I develop in my mind; however, I am even more influenced by the work of great Sci-Fi writers like Isaac Asimov, or Robert A. Heinlein. Other times, I am greatly inspired by my favorite Sci-Fi TV shows, such as Star Gate UNIVERSE; the STAR TREK Franchise; SPACE ABOVE & BEYOND; and, BABYLON 5. When I see the possibilities of life on other worlds, then I start thinking about what kind of scenery these other life forms (alien life forms) may experience on their worlds. It is the imaginary scenery that I attempt to design and photograph, and create to make the art pieces of the OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPE Series.

*** A Note about these postings of these artworks: I would give the individual stories behind each of these artworks, but those stories, or the background information will be available in an eFolio book which will be available soon, I hope, as soon as I finish it (but of course). I am almost finished with the final text of the eFolio, and then, the usual edits, and then, publish the manuscript. It is basically a portfolio showing all the current and finished artworks in this series. Each artwork is accompanied by the story, I mean, the Science Fictional narrative behind the scene shown in each art piece. Anyway…these individual narrative stories will be available in the OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES eFolio publication. I will announce that release when it is ready. ***
