Jim Jasper's exhibition is a chapter-by-chapter interpretation of Moby Dick in 140 drawings. Melville's novel contains numerous references to art, ranging from scientific illustration and nautical folk art to Turner seascapes. Jasper's pictures draw on these visual sources to convey the breadth of the book, which encompasses an adventure, a whaling manual, an epic, a natural history, and a queer love story.
