Becky Slemmons: It just came to him

It just came to him

Becky Slemmons (BFA 2003)

The night before filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky left his family and homeland Russia, not certain if he would return, he hosted a farewell party. All of his friends wished him well, enthusiastically. But it was his German Shepherd that would not look him in the eye. These are three drawings in a series of 66, inspired by specific scenes from Tarkovsky's films, in which a dog or dogs appear.
