The previous comments on Hofmann and Stella started me thinking about this work.
Most of the Moby Dick works combine the curvy forms of the wave/whale shapes with geometrical sections, but this one is completely biomorphic, maybe even expressionist. The crumpling and bending of the wave/whale shape at the front and even more the one behind it, which also seems to be spray painted, recalls John Chamberlain, but that’s maybe too obvious a connection. How about Hofmann? Formally it’s about layering forms on top of or in front of each other to hide, cut and edit—as well as to make new.
