Title: FISH 1-4
Materials: mixed media
The increased acidity of water around coral reefs causing the destruction of the polyps in a process known as bleaching is well chronicled. I make no judgement call on that issue. But this fact began my journey down a path of speculation about all sentient beings remaining blithely unaware of the forces of change around them and carrying on as usual as things deteriorate. In this series of surreal sculptures I chose coral fish, real and imaginary, as a metaphor to illustrate the much broader point.
