Luis Cruz Azaceta, Hijacked, 2010, acrylic, charcoal, oil sticks, shellac on canvas
This is an unsettling piece. The heavy lift ship and its little boats stuck floating in the butternut ocean. Rust leaked out into the water from decades of captivity in the great big bivalve with nothing but the pearly moon staring it down. Giant clap upward of shell halves from the deep to catch its prey for what purpose, for how long?
