“The print I have created for Cirrus’s Fiftieth Anniversary Edition She Whispered in our Ear: Surrender into Diamonds! is a continuation of an ongoing narrative. The aesthetic of this print is in-between the digital medium and drawing. The blue background image is taken from my pastel drawing method in which I use the long edge of a single pastel to shade the whole of the black paper. But this time, and unlike my drawings, my hand has digitally drawn a star field of my own envisioning, creating an imagined star field with an ambiguous perspective. In the process of making the print I asked myself, “Am I looking at stars through trees? Is there more to what I am looking at? What if I could go deeper in my vision, what would I see? In response, I added a delicate and gradated line, slightly tilted, and going in and out of the star field, itself answering a question with more questions. Through this digital and hand drawn process, I have produced an image that is almost photographic. Rather than setting out to map the stars, I realize and embody a cosmology of my own making where the 25th Century Female Astronaut uses the language of light to send a message guiding us through our ongoing story.”
