Gnarly Prints: When Fish Become Art
Take a drive down any coastal highway and you might find it difficult not to look out over the watery landscape passing before you. I have often done this and found myself daydreaming about that next time I’ll spend on the water fishing, or in the water swimming or free-diving. Some people might not give a second thought to what lies beneath our shimmery seas but stop for a moment, close your eyes, and imagine that other-worldly realm where a cornucopia of unusual creatures, mammals, and beautiful fish live out their destinies. Every single creature in our oceans plays a vital role in the ecology of our waters. Humans have found sustenance in the ocean’s abundance for thousands of years. But now, the fish taken from our waters not only provide us with a food source but something a bit unexpected — art.
