Lost Fish #1, 60cm x 90cm, acrylic, mixed media on canvas
I love fish, to watch as they swim through their world and, unfortunately for them, to eat. But as with the trees, I’m concerned at the pressure they are under now and it seems that the battle for the seas will be one of the worst wars to come. When looking through an old scientific book on fish|I found these two that I created drawings from and collaged onto the canvas. My use of water helped achieve the looseness of the background, suggesting the sea, making water a true element of the painting.
