This series of drawing was inspired by Albrecht Dürer’s famous 1515 drawing of an Indian rhinoceros, based on the accounts of Valentim Fernandes. Dürer never actually saw one of these animals; he could only make an image from the flawed and incomplete information at his disposal. In making these drawings, I avoided looking at any reference images. The resource I tried to tap is memory- specifically, vivid moments of bird watching with my father.
