Gods of the Glass Bead Game - Print

from 12.00

This piece is about the sheer diversity of different stories and symbols found in cultures around the world. The idea of the Glass Bead Game was fascinating to me long before I ever read the book - of people playing a game by weaving together bits from all of cultural history. The beings in this drawing inhabit a whole world unto their own, the world of thought and story - and you can see a little window into our own hard, physical realm peeking through. 

People claim that they can look for hours at my work and still discover new things. I grew up visiting the Museum of Natural History in New York, gazing at the elaborate dioramas with my grandmother, always trying to find a new creature neither of us had spotted yet. And so my art is an extension of this idea - that the world is always full of new things to discover, and even the dullest patches of earth are full of microscopic creatures that look alien to us, tiny crystals and bacteria with whirling, tricky gears of life inside. 

This drawing was originally done with ink, watercolor, and prismacolor marker.
