Robert Taplin

The Major Moons of Jupiter

Monday, November 5 - Thursday, December 6, 2001

Hampden Gallery   

This exhibit is part of an ongoing series of works that began in 1999. Taplin blends the physical characteristics of the planets with the mythological characteristics of the figures for whom they were named. Jupiter is the king of heaven, the god of the sky, associated with storms and the lightening bolt. Neptune and Pluto are his brothers, the gods of the seas and underworld respectively. In this exhibition the figure of Jupiter will be almost twice lifesize, scraping his head on the ceiling while the smaller figures of his four major moons will be suspended around him. The figures will be illuminated providing the only light in a darkened gallery.
