CIRQUE DU L'ORCA
Open edition print by V. Rae
Image size: 16" x 12"
Whether sailing Alaska coastal waters or snorkeling Hawaiian shores, V Rae chronicles natural life through bold portraits that leap from the canvas to your heart. Defying convention in a startling fusion of color and negative space, V paints Freestyle Expressions that transport each personal encounter through time and space, sharing with the world her seamless blend of art, nature and individual personality. Like Humpback whales, V migrates between Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii each year painting from platforms frequented by her subjects.
Artist's narrative: Anchor up, we slid across the mirror surface afloat on air or sea apparent only from the hint of wake off our bow. Ghosting through surreal time and space, the spell suddenly broke in a horizon of dazzling bursts. In rapid-fire succession, glistening columns of rainbow mist drifted our way, until ebony towers pierced the surface and directed us to take our seats. For an hour we sat transfixed by Cirque du Soleil whistles, clicks, slaps and leaps, all choreographed in sparkling precision and grace. As they left the stage we clapped and cheered. A frolicking, tight knit, salmon tossing troop of Orca connected by whistles, clicks and tail slaps…sounds a lot like home.
