Confusion reigns in the sea: sea turtles mistake plastic objects for their usual food, flamingos approach fashionable inflatables and mistake them for their own kind. This is the tragic-ironic theme of this painting.
The jellyfish enjoys an advantage thanks to the plastic bag, while the turtle is left high and dry. The amount of plastic found in the lifeless bodies of many marine animals is staggering. We need to examine our conscience, but most of all we need to radically change our lifestyle and the way we produce our items.
One sign of the pandemic can be seen in the picture: a surgical mask. It is now easier to find in the sea than certain endangered species.
This engraving is the result of three overlapping prints, one for each colour. The entire process is handcrafted and each piece unique.
