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!
