Stranding Series: Sperm Whale Ireland, 2005
Unique Block Print on rag paper

In this series each piece takes its title from the date and place of a specific stranding event. The number of repetitions of the whale image accurately reflects the number of animals that stranded at that time and place. In these more recent (2022) pieces I have included weather data as well, and the images are on copies of historic whaling vessel journals drawn from the New Bedford Whaling Museum library.
Daniel Ranalli: Whale Stranding   is currently a solo exhibition at:
The New Bedford Whaling Museum, New Bedford, MA through February 5, 2024.  It is accompanied by a 70-page fully illustrated catalog with essays by the artist and others associated with whale strandings. ore information here:   https://www.whalingmuseum.org/exhibition/whale-strandings-daniel-ranalli/
