Title: Whalez Fragmented
Artist: Ana Bardossy
Creative Director: Joe Stickel
Craft Beer Art Project, 2019
This work is a part landscape, part abstraction, illusionistic landscape painting derived from the rarest and most sought-after beers in the world. The design is reminiscent of the dangers of the dark, it meditates on human suffering, echoing back to the tale of Moby Dick and Ahab.
The work deploys post-capitalist consumer politics as it explores the desires and longing in the hunt for those illusive whalez.
