FISH MEETINGS PROJECT

This is a brand new batik titled FISH MEETING (2010) by Dominic. It's 33x19 inches in size.

INSPIRATION
This was an inspiration afterI watched a documentary about the disappearing species of fish in Lake Victoria due to over-fishing. Many local leaders were interviewed on this issue and i soon realised that the real victims of this rather sad occurrence were the fish, not the humans. So i tried to think of what could be going on at the bottom of the lake among the dwindling stocks of fish and i imagined anger and despair. This is the first of 3 meetings that am working on. I used a fire color scheme to depict the anger that could be burning everywhere among the fish stocks especially after a realisation that there's nothing they can do to sop the menace. Their only chance of survival is for the human who is causing their demise to regulate himself and at least stop the over-fishing.
COMING SOON..
FISH MEETING 2 and 3
