Ethereal Geometry Arts

Ethereal Geometry Arts Surreal space/aerospace painter located in Huntsville, AL at Lowe Mill Arts Center in studio 2048 I offer originals as well as prints and stickers.

I am an artist located in Huntsville, AL in a studio at Lowe Mill ARTS&Entertainment. My work centers on dreamy/surreal scifi/aerospace imagery as well as hilarious spacey pet portraits. My works are primarily hand-painted in acrylic ink on watercolor paper, though I also experiment with painting on other surfaces such as metal, wood panel, and occasionally canvas, and even less occasionally, digi

tal. I also offer custom framing with riveted metal borders as an add-on. I am also available by commission, for pet portraits, album art, as well as dreamy ideas of your/mine you’d like to hang up in your house as a finished painting. About the weird name:

So why Ethereal Geometry? It's a name that came to me as I was redrawing differently one of the first original art ideas I had years ago. It goes hand in hand with the meaning of No More Horizon(one of my longest series) and Surreal Heights--the idea of seeing dreams become reality, heaven and earth, night and day, the world inside becoming the world outside, etc. It's the idea of building something eternal, building from the world within. It's all about (re)discovering who we really are through exploring the inner creative world. I hope my work speaks to you in a way only you can understand, and says more to you than words ever could.

Here is the concept sketch/painting framed. I am tossing around the idea of doing prints of the concept sketch once I’m done with the original. Depending on how much interest this draws up.

Well, I went on a hunch and decided to add background into this one - and muddied it up. Looks like I just added a couple months worth of work to it but it’ll be worth it once it’s finished.

A nice evening.

“Starclux Pups” - I think I’m finally finished. Now to mount it to the metal border and install it in a frame. I really went perfectionistic on this one - especially due to the fact that I was dealing with multiple light sources and reflections. I made the chickens look like your average coffee hipster baristas and made the espresso machine look like Apollo-era machinery. Plus, note the goofy menu.
I’ll post when it’s framed with the metal.

Hey, it’s me, I’m typing this in the first person. I’m located in Huntsville, AL at - feel free to come visit me at my studio - I’m usually there on Fridays and Saturdays most consistently. I do dreamy art mostly inspired by dreams and viewing the world through that lens. My work is very figurative and symbolic, often involving themes of human nature. This picture was from the a few weeks ago, and was printed on recycled paper.

I started on the extension of this big gaming table - but arranged it so it could be a standalone painting. Not sure what I’ll put as the focal point - either another rocket of some sort, waiting to go to the launch pad, a satellite dish/radar, or perhaps a Soviet statue. I also decided it might be a cool idea to put bottles of water scattered about to break up the monotony of earth toned rubble. this entire painting is a learning experience as there’s a lot to it, that I have not obviously added into my work, or I have not previously done well at.

These days pencil drawing eases my mind more than anything. But I LOVE powdered charcoal - applying it with a brush - wet or dry - adds SO MUCH contrast and intensity. Since I struggle with color (red/green colorblindness) I love monochrome because it eases the burden of having to get colors right. And it’s FUN to see it come together.

Right: working title - “Welcome to Here” - an outpost drawing

I was one of ten artists who got to paint a lawn mower dome for the autonomous lawn mowing service Yard Robotics. Last night was their company party so I stopped by to see them on display.
Most of the other artists went super artsy, creative, thoughtful. I, on the other hand, didn’t really have any idea of what to paint on it except to go abstract and/or create a mood - I experimented with color and added riveted metal. My idea was to do v***rwave-esque space art pushing my color combinations for what I describe as dreamy edible colors. You know, colors that look and feel like they come from another world. And then add riveted metal panels colored to compliment and stand out from the background it’s up against.
I used it as a chance to experiment. I think I did alright, maybe?

Progress shot on “Late Great Bloomer”
- I’m stumped on what to do with the roots - darken, erase, or only focus on certain strategic roots for compositional purpose. The objective with this one isn’t to make it hyper realistic but to make it look like a messy sketch of an idea, and yet of course I got carried away because the process is addictive - add more and feel intrigued, then add more, then I gotta do it to the rest, so I keep adding and adding, then it ends up looking far more completed than I intended, yet takes ten times as long. It’s also partly due to perfectionism - I’m never satisfied so it’s never quite done.

“Union” - day 14 of “Eclipse”
obviously, I did not paint that today, but I really don’t have much time lately to do anything new because of my job. But this is a painting that I feel, I should show off a bit more than I do figuratively and schematically. This one is one of the first that blurs the lines of whether rocket or the tree is the true self / nature of who we are, and suggests that maybe we are both.
You can find this on display at my studio and at Punk Rock Flea Market tomorrow at

“One Ship Two Ship Red Shift Blue Shift” - Progress shot. Had to drastically adjust the lighting to make it consistent with the lighting on the moon. Then had to adjust the lighting on the moon in order to not have to completely change the lighting on the Rocket. Yay for perfectionism!
Also, I wish I had submitting this for Day 1 of the for “Rocket” 🚀🤦‍♂️

Day two of - Galaxy. This is “Trailhead” - Loosely based on NGC-1365, or the Great Barred Spiral- painted with airbrush on riveted aluminum, finished a few months ago and was gifted by my client to a fellow artist friend of mine. My goal with this one was to do a galaxy in a v***r wave color scheme. After MUCH trial and error I think I figured out a color combination I really liked. I didn’t have time to paint a new one today so I figured I should share one I did already at least

“Let’s Clomb a Tree” - the first idea on paper the sparked the trajectory of rocket paintings. The idea that if I were to have found a rocket like I have many times in my dreams, I would invite my friends and we’d build a treehouse - so naturally there’d have to be a tree in it. So I sketched the idea that led to this painting. That sketch made me realize how I felt like a rocket with a tree in it, so I started the series with a different drawing to work out some pent up anger. This one followed shortly after - a progression from a destroyed rocket to building something beautiful and life returning. Maybe in some way representing revisiting in order to make sense of the past so we can heal. Or of self-acceptance - you are beautiful regardless of what damage you may have taken on. So let’s remember to be kids again and enjoy being here and love who we are.
Sadly the Rocket that inspired it has been torn down this last week as it was structurally unsafe to leave up by a highway. That was heartbreaking for many of us in the space community.
The original painting is still in my studio if you want to come see it and/or adopt it 🚀
