Time and Tide Bell ~ 200Fish

A Continuing Arts Programme facing Lincolnshire's Coast
#200Fish is a community project to create works of art based on each of the species of fish found in the North Sea. The objective is to raise awareness of the biodiversity of the North Sea.

There are about 200 species of fish native to the North Sea. This project is to record their existence through works of art. Mindful of the threats to the marine environment, global warming, ocean acidification, pollution, over-fishing and so on, we are inviting a large number of artists each to pick one of the fish species and produce a painting or other art-work therefrom.

My fish is Fish #148 Black Seabream Spondyliosoma cantharu.

My images and some narrative to explain why I selected this fish can be found here

The first art exhibition at the new North Sea Observatory, on the Lincolnshire coast at Chapel Point, opens on Thursday 23rd August, staged by Lincolnshire Time and Tide Bell Community Interest Company and Blue Fish is included in the exhibition
