LET’S MEET ARTNESS CONTEMPORARY ART MAGAZINE’ S COVER CONTEST WINNER ! STORM BY DOUG PULLER. @dougpullerartist
Storm relates to the dangers and risks little girls are exposed to. It alludes to the sexual trafficking and other horrors they face in these times. The three girls hang web-like in the middle of chaos and impending danger—fragile and broken—yet still innocent. They appear as if they are in the midst of a storm—as the small Emily Dickenson poem states on the piece:
‘Twas such a little—little boat
That toddled down the bay!
‘Twas such a gallant—gallant sea
That beckoned it away!’
Twas such a greedy, greedy wave
That licked it from the Coast—
Nor ever guessed the stately sails
My little craft was lost!
