    Description

    Alex Nino - Original Art for a Portfolio Plate (Unpublished, 1979). Alex Nino presents a more friendly vision of alien interaction in this starship maintenance scene. Space, light, and gravity are all cosmically bent in outer space as a rocket ship hurtles to the stars. Nino combines subtle crosshatching modelling in his figure work with the starkness of mechanical forms illuminated in space. The art paper size is 25.25" x 19.75" with an image area of 22.75" x 18.75". The condition of the art is excellent, with small touches of white-out applied to achieve lighting effect. The piece is signed and dated 1979. Margin notes in pencil indicate the piece is titled "Lockout".
