Brian May : – “Sarah Rugg was one of the first to produce original works inspired by my work, and not limited to my activities in Queen; she also became the first to act as a channel for me to appreciate the work of others on social media. Her talent is undeniable, and her output nothing short of prodigious.”
Sarah Rugg : – “The journey of self-discovery in Brian May’s album “Back to the Light” in many ways mirrors my own growth as an artist during the creation of this book. I sincerely hope that within these pages you will find not only an understanding of how I see Brian, but also gain insight into an artist who is doing her best to navigate through life … channelled through her muse, who is trying his best to do the same.”
Brian, so impressed by artist Sarah Rugg’s Brian-inspired artworks (‘Bri-Art’) posted on Instagram, suggested that they should be shared with a wider audience in the form of this beautiful album-sized coffee-table book “Back to the Light”.
Sarah an artist who has studied her art and her subject well, skilfully illuminates Brian’s wisdom, power and passion through her portraits in this book. As well as celebrating Brian May, the musician, Rugg aBlso presents the astronomer and the stereo photographer in her imagery, capturing his multi faceted existence.
