    raven-tri-coloured vertical


    It is impressive to see how Haida artist Darrel Amos creates startlingly powerful images with a minimum of lines, shapes, and colours. He returns again and again to the theme of the creation of light in the world – raven stealing the sun and the moon. Here Darrel portrays the theft of the moon from the box that held both sources of light, for the day and the night. He is extending his palette to include a luminous royal blue for much of the body of the raven, and the same colour outlines the relatively small moon gripped in the raven’s beak before the moon is released into the sky. The painting is on 140 pound art paper, using acrylic paint. The vertical format lends itself very well to the upward thrust of the raven’s beak. V 23” X H 13”, 20 grams.
