Lorraine Gill Galleries - The Kraken Series

The Kraken Begins

'The Kraken Begins' is an exploration into the grammar of the octopus coming into being from the depths of the sea.

This painting uses the device of a clay tablet which represents time.

Within the tablet are other dimensions of activity.

The bottom of the painting is an abstraction of surf.

Two small figures give scale to the size of the monster about to be born.

It is a reality of the imagination and legend.

The Kraken is the Idea.
