Oceanus Rubigo

Ocean Of RustI came upon a dumpster in my neighborhood speckled with rusted, peeling paint pockmarks and a crow in the same parking lot. I immediately thought the two would make a meaningful pairing, and set about documenting them as best I could. Thinking back to nautical maps of centuries ago, the kind with sea beasts and rough approximations of coastlines, I took the opportunity to include several of my common photomontage elements in a similar vein. Clouds, an eye, tree parts, a moth, etc. – all come together in this assemblage. It took a good long while compared to most of my projects, but I got it done, this vision in my head. And that’s satisfying. See the source components here.
