Jane Perkins – favorite artist of ours – has a new completed work! Here it is reblogged from her website:
Sometimes I struggle over a work and it takes weeks to finish (The Woman in Gold). Sometimes work goes together like a dream – as in the just-completed The Great Wave, after Hokusai, based on a famous woodcut by the Japanese artist. The whalers in the boats have been replaced with little heads and some alien-like dolls in the foremost boat. At the heart of the wave is a 2-headed sea monster – great fun to make!
This piece and the Sunflowers from Amsterdam are now in the Red Propeller Gallery, Kingsbridge.
Compare Jane Perkin’s version with the original:
Pretty cool, huh?
Here’s the larger version so you can see all the really cool stuff her Wave is made of!!!
