The Great Destroyer

Ashley Maximillian

The Great Destroyer

”The Great Destroyer“ is a piece about death, beauty, exploration, life, and rebirth. A potentially destructive comet, a beautiful jellyfish from the mysterious explored abyss.

          I used familiar colors and unfamiliar techniques for this piece. Chance and chaos guided my breaths against delicate drops of gold acrylic ink to fill the body across the cosmic dust.”

Ashley Maximillian is a self taught transgender artist focused on a wide range of mediums from acrylic to resin, noisy instruments and music production, junk innovation and more driven by her desire for exploration and transformation. She is driven by her love of the cosmos and the unknown and the terror that they can bring both visceral and existential.
