The Turkey Hunt Proved Difficult After the Eclipse of 1878
mixed media collage, 9 x 12″, 2017
Chaos, serenity, visions of what was or could be; what happened during the eclipse of 1878? When I observed the total eclipse of 2017, I wondered what was experienced during a past total eclipse. While creating ‘The Turkey Hunt Proved Difficult After the Eclipse of 1878’ I thought about what strange or unusual happenings may have taken place at that time. This piece was my vision on a fantastical version of how the sun and the moon; the eclipse, could have an effect on the mundane or ordinary everyday events of that time.
