Ernst Haeckel Bat – AVAILABLE I fell in love with the work of Ernst Haeckel from my first introduction. I bought three of his art books just because I wanted every single image he ever made. I looked through the many books over and over to find which of his perfect images I would try and study by doing it myself. Many of which were very scary and daunting – as they are extremely dainty and delicately drawn. I decided on the bat which I find to be really fascinating creatures. It’s like they evolved one way, and then a piece of them evolved another way and then they found it super efficient to have vestigial eyes. They are covered in strange folds and are so cute. 56×76 cm. Acrylic paint, markers and ink on canvas.
