Andy Gilmore’s Nebula Series marks the first self-contained body of work the artist has released under Ghostly International Editions. The series, comprised of six stunning compositional variations on a theme, is some of Gilmore’s most poetic work to date, juxtaposing geometric pattern, gaseous color shift, and negative space to evoke a sense of celestial wonder. 

Gilmore often describes his approach as an intuitive attempt to align the external image to the internal vision, an alignment which occurs in the nebulous space between consciousness and subconsciousness. The series, in Gilmore’s words, has served as “an epiphany of a particular level of control, from both a technical and intuitive vantage point, in organizing complex forms” to reach this alignment. 

Of the inspiration behind the series, Gilmore writes: “I have always approached making images from the perspective that I was summoning a cloud formation through which I would create the form it suggested to me. This approach began for me in my drawings, in which I would begin by drawing a cloud only for it to become a bird, a person, a plant, and so on. This is more or less the foundation of my creative process. Drawing as micro and the computer as macro--drawing as the Earth and the computer as (and of) the Sun. Nebula being the cloud of the Macrocosm.”

The compositions in the Nebula Series take the hexagon as their foundational form. Just as different scales and modes affect a musical composition, so do geometric forms inform the artistic composition, with different proportions eliciting different moods and meanings. In the Nebula Series, these moods and meanings are left to the viewer to uncover, with each composition provoking a different emotional response as the intensity of light and the value of colors change.

The Nebula Series is being offered complete as a limited edition, custom made cloth bound folio with 6 16” x 18” prints, as well individually in 24” x 30” or 30” x 40” prints.
