Abigail Rorer has created many small-scale, wonderfully detailed works but my favorite is this larger print. Here, her attention to detail thrives on a larger scale. The bison at the rear of the stampede are just as robust as those at the front, and the individual tongues, hairs, and drops of blood read as clearly as the overall motion of the herd.
