Leviathan and the Sinking Albatross


Art: Leviathan and the Sinking Albatross by Artist Caroline Lassovszky Baker
This piece began with canvas folded into the crane model. The model was scoured in a soda ash solution, then unfolded.  Procion lapis dye was applied to one side of the canvas forced through to the other. This resulted in the "back" side of the canvas retaining more dye in the fold creases. The canvas was then stretched "back" side up, with the crease pattern used as the under-painting. Inspired by stories of sea monsters, Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", and a fascination with giant squids.
