– 24” X 18” – Acrylic and mixed media on canvas.
This eccentric swimmer was inspired by my series of “sunfish” which I love to paint over and over again. As most of you know, I have a bias toward this fish species that most despise. I have always been captivated by its vivid colours sparkling in the sunlight.
Within the many layers of paint, you detect items that make me smile such as: the Batman symbol, several trademarks reminding me of my childhood, the Olympic rings, Montreal newspaper articles (on the 1976 Olympics) and comics by our favorite Michel Rebagliati.
Texture: Plaster and fabrics from my mother-in-law.
