Wingsail Voyager

WINGSAIL VOYAGER: A collage I made in 2002.

The boat is a crescent moon with wings for a sail. There is a
full moon and another little boat nearby. The image is influenced by Cornwall and Cornish artists and Japanese prints. I wanted to create a spatial paradox with the elements of the composition.

When I read Gautier's poem L'Ile Inconnue it reminded me of this picture of mine.
