Iapetus transition zone, WEB

Iapetus: Transition Zone, 90x70cm, monotype, charcoal, spit on glass plate.

Showing the frozen landscape of Iapetus, a moon in the Saturnian system which has a two-tone coloration, like a spherical ying-yang. Scientists form composite images of the surface by combining shots taken by the Cassini probe as it flies past. This is not dissimilar to the way in which our minds are constantly combining discrete images into a unified whole through the process of looking. I create my image through a singular act, forming one continuous surface that retains the presentation and illusion of a composite, yet everything is reversed so that an act of observation, analysis and discovery becomes an act of intuitive creation.
