SOMETHING TO SEA by artist Holly Wood
Acrylic gouache on wood panel, 14” x 14”
I always try to present serious ideas with a bit of wit and quirkiness. Hopefully, it draws people in, then gets them thinking.
This deep-sea Dumbo Octopus is mulling over a piece of trash that sank to the bottom with Dumbo the Elephant on it. In this way, I'm making a connection with the current plight of all beings, both in the sea and on land. And the plastic fork? Well, I'm hoping we won't have to say "Stick a fork in Mother Earth - She's done".
