MARINA REES

 
 
 
 
 
 

Marine mammal bones carved and used as stamps. Reminiscent of old whaling logbooks, where stamps were used to mark each whale harvested. The bone surfaces are of uneven textures and the inked stamps on paper recall traces of drawn whales rather than polished new and perfect impressions.
These works were a part of the solo show C-E-T-A-C-E-A, at the Húsavík Whale Museum, Iceland
