Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 1983
by Stephen St. Germain
Fifth in the series by Stephen St. Germain. Normally, a new artist is commissioned to create each year's image. St. Germain wanted to further explore the themes and techniques he established in the prior year's sold-out print. This time the artist went further in space, abandoning all pretense of any relationship to Earth, itself just another big balloon. Ultimately, the work suggests that balloons are heavenly bodies in their own orbit - a concept with which most balloonists would agree.
