“Stardust” contemplates the place of the human within the physical world. The figure is positioned at the edge of the concertina book and looks out towards a vast landscape that itself is dwarfed by an even more vast depiction of the sky. The night sky extends onto the end papers of the book, here displayed using an alternative media of etching rather than the internal page’s screen print. The holes punched from the paper allow the extension of the piece beyond its physical confines once opened for display and lit from an angle, further alluding to the conceptual aspect of the book.
Please note - due to the nature of the printmaking process there may be slight variations from the photograph shown in the edition purchased
