Bruce Bobick, Bats and Beans: Feeding Frenzy
蝙蝠與豆子的狂饗曲

Bats and Beans: Feeding Frenzy
蝙蝠與豆子的狂饗曲

Watercolor 水彩|51 x 104 cm|2018

This painting is part of a series depicting the concept of the innocent bystander, or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A previous painting shows one bean accidentally disturbing a hibernating bat. This painting shows the result: once one bat is awakened, they all awake, and start feeding on the defenseless beans.

本畫作為系列作品,描繪的是無辜的旁觀者,或是在錯的時間出現在錯的地方之概念。前一幅作品描繪一顆豆子無意間驚醒一隻沉睡的蝙蝠。這一幅則是其結果:吵醒一隻蝙蝠,便吵醒整群蝙蝠,開始獵食毫無抵抗之力的豆子。

祖母縫製給少年的被褥

Watercolor and gouache on Arches Cover Black水彩、水粉顏料、Arches畫紙、黑色披蓋|76 x 56 cm|2016

This painting depicts an imaginary quilt or bed covering made by the grandmother of Hieronymus Bosch. The images which she has sewn onto the quilt penetrated the youngster’s subconscious mind, night after night, while he slept, and influenced his future paintings.

本畫作描繪由波希的祖母所製作的一張被褥或床單,祖母縫進被褥的影像,一夜復一夜地在少年沉睡時滲入他的潛意識,也影響了他未來的畫作。
