The Scream

Format: 841*594mm
Medium: Hand made inks, bleach, graphite, oil stick and oil paint.
A bat is not a bird, but the figure fits best for the concept of the poem. In my usual style I have tried to incorporate as many of the poem's verses and phrases into the image without over crowding it. The wings of the bat are mountains draping over the scene. Reminiscent of fables and legends in which a winged woman would drape herself over the day sky, and create night.
  The two (almost) invisible cow's heads act as two visual props. Both the sun and the moon or two animals caught in a car's flood lights.
