Cover of the novel "Grounded" write by Chris Claremont, published in USA by Ace Editorial. Also published in the book Dreams, page 56.

 

Reassigned to a safer job on Earth following a nightmare mission battling space pirates, Lt. Nicole Shea must act as a liaison between the Air Force and aliens, who are attempting to construct a high-powered aircraft.

 

Painting has always seemed torn between an inward and an outward gaze: between vision and perception, between our dreams and the concrete, highly politicized conditions framing our comprehension of the world and what it might become. Today is no dierent. After a period in which the medium has been dominated by process-based abstraction, the gure – and representation with it – is ascendant again. But, if the 1990s and 2000s saw artists such as John Currin distorting classical form while others, following Gerhard Richter, mimicked photography, today’s figuration displays a distinctly different character. Gone, for the most part, are the echoes of old masters; gone, too, are the blurs of photorealism. What takes their place, instead, is a highly idiosyncratic approach ltered through pronounced aect, comic-book and sci- aesthetics, dreamy narratives and an eagerness to engage with our political moment without forfeiting the sensuousness of the medium.

David Geers (Sotheby’s)
