This piece was made for an exhibition in Aarhus, Denmark, organised by A Secret Club, called Expedition No. 2: To The North! Each artist was given a different part of the 'story' to illustrate. This one was all about the Six-Legged Bear...
'The Six-Legged Bear is cross between a real fear and a superstition. It is said to come up from the south and while it isn't aggressive, it's very destructive due to its size, strength and clumsiness - it is said that if a The Six-Legged Bear walks through your camp, not a single thing will remain whole, everything will be broken.'
This piece was influenced by antique maps, including star constellation maps (as it is a 'myth'), particularly as we had recently visited an exhibition on antique world maps at the American Museum in Britain (in Bath), which had had some particularly fine examples.
