Beauty Draws Her Beasts

I just had to share this photo of Philadelphia artist, Gina Deluca.  She seems to be tangled up in tentacles and tendrils standing in front of her large scale (6 1/2 feet by 4 feet) vivid charcoal drawing of two writhing octopii.  The work is entitled “Hectoctylus” for its reference to the single arm of a male octopus which, she tells me, has reproductive capacity.

Her charcoal rendering of large ostriches also conveys a sense of chaotic motion, with bird feathers literally flying!

I wish Gina good luck as she embarks on her new life adventure in Chicago.
