Viking Curves

Filed under: Rex — Rex @ 17:00

I did a trawl through my HD to find something for the Basingstoke Exhibition. I stumbled across this and it brought back good memories and I decided I liked it. So here it is. Have a go at that Exhibition, it is easy to enter and fun.



  1. The light and shadow on the longboat prow make it feel very ancient, almost primeval, like the uncoiling of a fern. Although I would be quite happy with that against a totally unobtrusive background, I appreciate the way this plays with the structure of the building where it is housed and think that the result adds considerably to the interest and visual presentation of the artefact.

    A very good play with graphics.

  2. Not sure why this comment from yesterday didn’t make it…so let’s try again!

    Some more wonderful curves, tones, textures, shadows and highlights holds this together very well. Like your FLW, the bottom slither holds a slight distraction within the boat(?). This has plenty of height to it but very little depth (which is not a bad thing). Would pass my ‘hang on the wall’ test but I think I’d need a rather high wall in which to place it.

  3. Also trying again as yesterday’s comment didn’t make it.

    All it needs to be and no more. Great echoes of cureves in both directions and enough boat to to tell us all we know. The light could be from Valhalla.

    Interestingly, I think this would work either large or small, though you’d need the right space to hang a large version.

  4. So many wonderful curves leaning in all directions helped by the different tones of light and slightly different colours on each surface.

    A gracious picture and one I am really enjoying looking at.

  5. Everything is right to my taste — the graphic design and shapes, the subtle color and texture, the gradient light effect — I hope the judges like it as well.

  6. A lovely balance of tone and texture and shape.
    Also brings back good memories for me from my time in Oslo (this could well be from the Viking Ships Museum there).
