HOME > DRAWINGS DRAWING FROM: TESSERAE OF VENUS PROJECT
VENUS 10 (AINE CORONA) previous next
The large circular structure near the center of the image is a corona, approximately 200 kilometers in diameter and provisionally named Aine Corona...

The Venus Drawings are created by drawing from online images of the Magellan Mission to Venus from the early nineties. A celebration of old new media-- primitive (by now) images of the sister planet surfaces are imprecise enough to launch a playful semi-erotica drawing extravaganza, with even a nod to Kenneth Anger’s Kustom Kar Kommandoes and the rock group Kiss (honoring the seventies and eighties along with the nineties). The airbrush paint is a deliberate kitschy kiss on the smooth skin of refined art papers. Some of the drawings are more serious than others, but all aspire to look like landing gear.
