Where Air Meets Water: The Eagle and Orca - The concept for this plater is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water; a drop of water which creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl-shape created by this abstract notion has produced the form of an Eagle, on the upper left side of the panel and an Orca it's body elusively curving around the right side of the panel. Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the panel and invite the viewer to explore the "waters" surface.
