Pieces in ‘Being Blackfish’

The first piece, a canvas construction called ‘Am I Blue?’, is on display in the April exhibit at Blackfish Gallery. The piece measures 88″ x 48″, and was created with oil paint on canvas strips sewn together. I included some detail photos of it in a previous post as a work in progress in my studio.

This month’s show also features 35 fish hanging in Blackfish’s front window space, which were created to celebrate Blackfish’s 35-year anniversary. My piece honors the styles of traditional Northwest Coast Indian art, and is a salmon sculpted out of cardboard and papier mâché and painted in acrylics.
