Arrested History

This is another image from the Katz book developed into a painting:

Brush & ink drawing, 9" x 6", 2008.

Acrylic on board, 10" x 8", 2008. That's probably an intermediate version, I'd like to do a rather larger one. The image is somewhat inspired by Magritte's paintings of floating heavy objects (rocks, castles) Koons' basketball/s in a tank of water, & Hirst's shark...I note that the painting is a lot less tranquil than the drawing, with the explosive contents tending to leak out, as it were.
