Pancake Ice & Arctic Cod


In the painting Pancake Ice and Arctic Cod the composition describes how the cod lurk just beneath the ice where they feed on the upwelling of microscopic plants and animals.  The ice has formed into typical pancake shapes of a freezing ocean.  In my painting the two shapes of fish and ice become inseparable, one becoming the other.  The transparency of the ice reveals the fish and recedes back into space toward the distant horizon depicting the vastness of the Arctic Ocean.
