Fish World

Fish World

Alkyd on canvas/plywood, 1980

Ever sit and stare at a fish tank or goldfish bowl? The bowl is especially interesting, as the refraction of light makes for some abstract distortion. What really got me thinking was the fact the glass bowl is the ENTIRE world to the fish. That’s why the canvas is wrapped around a fishbowl-shaped piece of wood.

A girl named Denise was kind enough to pose for this.
