The #200fish book has now been published and I have 3 paintings included, the Sand goby (Pomatoschistus minutes), Meagre (Argyrosomus Regis) and Two horned Sculpin (Icelus Bicornis). This book is part of an art project that aims to raise awareness of the biodiversity of the North Sea. Referencing the issues of global warming, climate change, rising sea levels, ocean acidification and over-exploitation.
There are about 200 species of fish native to the North Sea. This project records each one of the fish species through works of art from invited artists. After the major exhibition of the works, at the new North Sea Observatory, the exhibition goes on tour to other coastal venues.
