Gerald Statement

“When I received the Gerald net to illustrate, I was struck by how it reminded me of a star constellation pattern. This became the starting point for my design. A lot of ideas for my work originate loosely in mythology and I treated this in the same way. I used myths surrounding the Canis Major constellation, specifically of the Dog Star Sirius, which forms the nose of the constellation, as inspiration for the imagery. I wanted the pattern to remain random and dispersed once the dog had been erected, rather like a random scattering of stars.”
