Dive by artist Lacey Bryant

$ 425.00

Oil on wood, 11” x 14”

Via the artist: Dive was actually inspired by the falcons that roost on top of San Jose City Hall. They have their own webcam! I was interested in Falcons as they are actually adapting very well in city environments, taking out pigeons and rodents attracted by humans. I wanted to capture the moment of capture, as a falcon dives for its prey, separated from the flock. It's a powerful moment to reflect on I think. The building in the image is across the street from city hall, I included it because I liked the wizard statue looking on as a witness to the scene, and the bit of blood red from the flag above, foreshadowing the pigeons end. The shadow going across the building is another symbol of doom.
