Don’t know the provenance of this nightmarish painting, but I like the colors. It seems that these pickled specimens have come alive in their floating jars, seeking escape and revenge. As much as I want to get lost in the weird, dream-like imagery, I can’t stop thinking about how buying shark pups in jars (like purchasing shark jaws or teeth) encourages the slaughter of these already beleaguered fish. Maybe that’s what these angry little babies have come back to tell us. (Thanks, Helen!)
Probably the weirdest, most intriguing art post yet!
I know–it’s totally out there! I wish the painter would come forward!
