THE TALKING FISH
122 X 226 cm (48'' X 88'')
Oil and acrylic on wood, gloss varnish.
A man on a bridge pulls a thin thread. In the water behind the man a fish swims. It seems like the fish is going to speak to the man, giving him the surprise of his life. In the surface of the water you can see stars and galaxies, just as if a universe is hidden there. Perhaps it's our universe you are seeing there and this is the afterlife world.
Doesn't near-death experiences remind about swimming up towards the surface of the water when the beams of sunlight cuts through the water?
