Moby Dick Series

Between 2013 and 2015 I produced a series of works based on Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Melville’s book is much more than fiction and spans the globe with both New Zealand and the Shetland Isles being mentioned. It encompasses environmental issues, mythology, religion, race relations, biology and human behaviour. A rich source from which to draw material. My works included pen and ink drawings as well as large scale woodcuts and inked woodblocks, used as free standing figures.
