The art of science fiction

A visual thought experiment:

What does it mean if a painter’s work lends itself beautifully as science fiction cover art?

Rick Amor’s The turning season, 2000.

And as the cover for Arthur C. Clarke’s famous Childhood’s End.

Below: Coast, 2006 (based on Amor’s drawings of the Bolte Bridge under construction). And as a cover for Frank Herbert’s masterwork, Dune.

+ 3+

Mobile call, 2012. And as Philip K. Dick’s seminal The Man in the High Castle.

+ 4 +

And one more, closer to home. Study for Dark day Long Island, 2012. And as the cover for Neville Shute’s end-of-the-world On the Beach.
