Safety in Numbers


Hand Pulled Serigraph ~ 1989

16 x 22″ ~ 41 x 56 cm ~ Edition 27

Fish swimming in a school for safety, are not always safer. In this artwork a net is drifting down towards the fish.

Colorful tropical fish swim lazily while a net dangles in their direction. When under threat from a powerful outside danger fish swim quickly away, or they hide, or they band together in a show of force to fend off, and or confuse their enemy. This last method has greatly benefited the human animal, with its rather unusual predatory practices. Come to think of it whales, dolphins, and other large fish also like to take advantage of the densely packed school of swimming fish tidbits. Perhaps it’s time for the little fish to revisit this strategy.
