Eight Years and Seven Planets

May 3rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

For the last eight years, Brooklyn based artist Jesse Bransford has been deeply engaged with the seven ancient astrological planets.

Starting with the Sun, he’s been researching, painting, and writing about each planet and their mysterious influences on our world.

His journey has led him across cultures, time periods, and political and philosophical world views.

This summer he’ll conclude his series with Saturn, a perfect planet to end with.

His work is great. You can see some of it here, and read an interview with him by Kari Adelaide.

Some of his work will be part of the Sigils and Signs show I wrote about a few weeks ago. But hopefully, there’ll also be a show for Saturn itself. I’ll be looking out for it.

Till then though, you can take a look at the video below of Bransford creating a wall painting as part of his Moon installation back in 2009.

It’s beautiful.
