MAN WITH FISH, bronze, 7’ high

Man With Fish is a theme I have developed for some time now, describing the strange spirituality that we live with by knowing ourselves, by being aware of ourselves, and by finding hope within ourselves. The notion of a vast sea full of fish existing in the same space as a person is my way of portraying this thought. The fish has been used as a symbol of spirituality in many of the world’s great religions; also in the secular world for similar intent with the surrealism school of work.
