“Thunnus thynnus” acrylic on canvas, 160cm x 200cm

This painting was something of an experiment. How do I fracture the image of an animal in water? The way light is refracted in swirling seawater is broken enough, without trying to distort the image in reference to screens and the internet. The species is Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, another animal on the IUCN Red List and classified as critically endangered through over-fishing.
