Artist's Description

Medium: Acrylic Paint on Acrylic Paper
Description:

Octopuses interest me greatly. Their numerous tentacles represent such freedom of movement and a real sense of foreboding. In movies, the giant octopus or squid (Kracken) is always portrayed as an evil entity where, if such a huge creature existed in life, they would be no more evil than a daffodil.

Eyes have become somewhat of an obsession of mine since working on a project based on the band Tool’s album 10,000 Days. Cycloptic creatures in fantasy are cast in the same light as giant sea ‘monsters’ and are even tagged with a ‘freak’ label in our world.

Combine the two together and you would assume we have a deep sea dwelling animal of pure evil… but the cycloptopus isn’t and evil being. It’s just misunderstood.

Complete in 2009.
