Gone Fission #209

 

[cut paper assemblage] Daniel Stuelpnagel 2013

Now I will just paint or cut out a photo for a new fish and put a circle of blue tape on it and find a spot for it on the intermittently empty wall next to my desk, then as I keep looking at it and enjoying the tranquil feeling of scuba diving, I’ll pick another fish painting that has a relationship with the first one, and let them sort of group as they would in nature.

An early cutout to start off this series, I like this piece because it is an integrated image where the aspects of the appropriated page seem to tie in with the silhouette and create a plausible image, yet there is also an unmistakable resemblance to the fish being caught in a plastic six-pack holder, one of the most common and deadly yet mundane forms of water pollution.
