Part of my fascination with these small-scale watercolor collage paintings is that they represent a vast expanse of ocean yet also appear to resemble an aquarium tank, the dualistic nature of this metaphor of containment is very appealing.

It could be a matter of attitude or perception, a Rorschach test for the viewer to see abundant space or confined space, brightly-colored fish in a beautiful environment or mutated fish in a hostile ocean.
