Larassa Kabel - The Pack
by Larassa Kabel


Larassa Kabel’s The Pack, lithograph with gold leaf, is a continuous line drawing based on coyote taxidermy forms. In creating this, Kabel was interested in working with collapsed value ranges. The density of lines shows exaggerated areas, following the topography of the bodies. In different positions, the figures become layered, contour over contour, until the lines intimate movement of the pack, dispersing toward the edge of the paper. Kabel and printmaker Asa Wentzel Fisher used white ink on cream-colored paper, and to give the animals more form and relief, gold leaf was added.
