Sinking Ship, 2012

Inspired by the current political climate and Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “The Malestrom.” 
Half a clipper ship painting seems to have hit a storm and is falling off the edge of the painting frame (or the world) dripping water or paint on the floor. 
The materials of the painting are now turning into the structure of the boat, with the canvas becoming sails and the stretcher bars becoming a mast.
