Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Argo was the ark, the ship from ancient Greek mythology that carried Jason. More recently it was reimagined as the spaceship from the 80s animation Starblazers that carried the hope of humanity.

In this painting the Argo is a metaphor for the future where biological systems have been shed for inorganic forms: a crystalline flower visited by mechanical bees. It may initially seem sterile on the pale honeycombed background, but closer inspection shows the dance of the bees: information flowing back and forth as alive as DNA, sparkling, full of hope and perhaps beautiful in its own way.
