Solien has created a powerful body of work inspired by Herman Melville’s 1851 novel, Moby-Dick and Sena Jeter Naslund’s 1999 bestseller, Ahab’s Wife. While numerous American artists have interpreted Melville’s novel, Solien is the first and only to also embrace its contemporary sequel in Ahab’s Wife. By imagining Ahab’s widow leaving the East Coast for a North Dakota homestead, Solien simultaneously explores the ambitions and incentives that drive his own artistic creativity.
