While taking a class with the artist James Rosenquist, I learned to apply new techniques to those I had honed over the years for my final piece, I Feel (Cancer). From this painting, I decided to make an entire series based on the zodiac signs.
The focus of these paintings was to take the commonplace symbols for each sign and abstract them. I wanted to create paintings with a double-entente: an ethereal representation of the zodiac sign and the formalist abstraction that would stand on its own.
Each zodiac sign has its own key phrase, lending to the title to each piece.
