Love and Rockets: Tara McPherson joins Infectious

California native Tara McPherson has a thing about space. She was the Vice President of the astronomy club at school and even started studying for an astrophysics degree, but luckily (for us) she chose instead to follow her artistic talents. But even now she illustrates her characters under starry skies, on alien planets or wearing spaceman-like helmets. One of her most iconic images, a female figure with a heart-shaped void in her torso, is called Orion. A recent series of paintings is based on a gravitationally lensed quasar called Einstein’s Cross. And for her Infectious Car Art she envisioned intergalactic bunny Ion Z zooming down your car in his rocket ship. Tara is now based in Williamsburg, New York, where as well as pursuing her otherworldy themes, she has also created critically-acclaimed gig posters for the likes of Beck, The Strokes and Depeche Mode.

Check out her stellar and heartbreaking artwork on our website.
