Sunrise Behind a Dark Moon

Sunrise Behind a Dark Moon is composed of many different images from the desert of Saudi Arabia.  This is a mysterious planet, and a mysterious sky and the morning light is beautiful.  Hot Air Balloons compete like the strange new moon at dawn.   Trees float and the rock of the earth rises.  Gravity reverses just as darkness becomes day.  The reverse physics of time and space become an integrated part of the production of lift off.    This is a truly epic image symbolizing mans search for truth in nature.  As a Scientist I am concerned with the way that the natural physical ideas function together in harmony.  As both an Artist and as a Scientist I am continually on the lookout for contrasts. The image of Sunrise Behind a Dark Moon is about the contrasts of spatial relationships. As this image is viewed, the eye discovers weightlessness and time instantly stops. There is tension between the structures and they move you to your destination.
