The Raft of Medusa

Here's another exhibition which opened today: The Raft of Medusa by Wolfe von Lenkiewicz. You'll find it at All Visual Arts in London. The gallery proclaims "This new body of work builds on the artist’s previous coalescences of disparate imagery..." That's enough of the blurb. So, what has this to do with The Journey’s End (2013) shown here? Look closely and you'll see that Wolfe has taken Théodore Géricault's famous masterpiece The Raft of The Medusa (1818–1819) and has plonked it in the Arctic Ocean, complete with icebergs and a curious walrus. Why? CLICK to read the rest of the blurb and to view more images.
