dance of seven whales

dance of seven whales
Cut-paper collage. Background from paintings by Gerhard Richter, Joe Overstreet, and Howard Hodgkin.. Whales from paintings by Georges Braque, Ter Brugghen,, Robert Campin, Paul Cézanne, John Constable, Eric Heckel, and Katsushika Hokusai.

I've been distracted away from art recently, but I did find an inspiring art book: Unpainted to the Last: Moby-Dick and Twentieth Century American Art by Elizabeth A. Schultz. I was surprised that abstract expressionists were inspired by my favorite novel! Their whales weren't very realistic, so I felt free to make mine that way.

I like the way this moves and dances inside the black frame.
