Recently I painted a concentration of marine life in a light that makes them seem alien,eldritch,or like just funky.
I’ve always had an immense love and fascination for marine life but I never really knew why.Just the concept of life living and swimming in waters as of it were birds flying indefinitely was strange.And the fact that we’re were much more to it than just “fish” was so extraordinary
On my Instagram I provided “in-the-field descriptions” as if they were real.I gave absurd fictional logs on the way they swim or how absurd they are for hunting food.Sure I exaggerated: angler fish using sounds,squids having exoskeletons.But I wanted to present how bizarre marine life is even if you leveled it back with regular oceanic fauna.
Originally I made them for room decor so I gave them a punk collage look but I ran out of glue lol.Ok end of posts it’s starting to lag.
