HR Giger's Biomechanical Landscape II (work 417 referenced Pollock's "The Moon-Woman Cuts the Circle" merged with his Untitled (Bald Woman with Skeleton) and a comic book panel woman holding a long printout wrapped around Inspector Clouseau's head.
|Biomechanical Landscape II (work 417) (1979)|
a. i) 17th of February 2016, looking at Giger's Biomechanical Landscape II (work 417), I realised that continued with his exploration of Pollock's paintings, taking the untitled painting known as "Bald Woman with Skeleton" and merged it with "The Moon-Woman Cuts the Circle" turned upside down.
The bird skull has been merged with the long bow shape stretching from the lower left to the upper right that represents the woman's body stretching down to a leg.

a. viii) white bulge and comparative form in Giger's painting
b) Comparisons with panel from The Inspector and the Pink Panther # 16,
b. i) Sunday 4th of March 2018, having learnt about the Pink Panther connection with Giger's art I find myself looking through the pages of the comic book The Pink Panther # 16, and come to page 5 to find a delightful image of a computer printout with a list of arrestees and decided that Giger would have looked through the comic book, found this panel delightful and then later would incorporate it into a work.

b. ii) The part of the print out to the left of the woman's head becomes horizontal ribbing while her face and head outline become a complicated curving structure that can barely be described, but this has been merged with the white bulge from Pollock's The Moon-Woman Cuts the Circle
