No Fishing Sign no. 40

Cardboard, paint, ink
14.5" x 16.5" 

Several prohibitions have been layered and obscured in this dense, painterly No Fishing Sign. Multiple shades of green, teal, orange, yellow, and pink peek through a unifying layer of white glossy paint, which has been both painted and drizzled on. Veils, washes, and scumblings of earthy tans, beiges, and ochres add to the density. An orange line, in oil pastel, floats above it all. Meanwhile, fragments of the words “NO”, “FISHING”, and “TODAY” can be read scattered about the composition.
