The Original Six Artists


THE ORIGINAL 6, from left to right: John Abel, Ken Goldman, Analise Rigan, Andre Rushing (front), Thierry Chatelain, and Stephanie Goldman.

This collection of 144 original paintings by six contemporary artists is a creative visual conception of the combination of the twelve Eastern astrological years and the twelve signs of the Western zodiac. It is a commissioned project that took over three years to complete and represents a contemporary view of the ingenious talent of the artists viewed through the framework of popular and historic astrology. It has been a challenge to these visual artists to pique the interest of the patrons of fine art, as well as the general public, through the appeal of this allegorical imagery in astrological personality portraitures.
