Nautilus

Works on Paper

Finalist

Charcoal on paper, 90cm x 112cm

Nautilus reflects an interest in the proportion and growth rate of the nautilus shell, and in forms echoing through nature. The work depicts a whippet curled into a form that imitates the shell, and is lit from beneath to create a sense of floating, echoing the buoyancy of the nautilus.
