Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery (in NW Victoria) has an exhibition on the Murray cod, Australia's largest freshwater fish. Among the items on display is printmaker Rhyll Plant's magnificent woodcut portrait of it. Cod Piece is a life-size image printed from six rounds of Huon pine.
Rhyll is fond of visual puns—fishy or otherwise—and all sorts of word plays. This is her garish garfish. What's particularly pleasing about her works is that they're not only funny but also accurate. (Although I'm a bit suspicious about the colours on the garfish ...)
I've already blogged about her works before in Wooden art and Doing her block. Check 'em out if you're into art, printmaking and/or squid. (Note that links in those posts connect to one another.)
The Murray Cod exhibition closes on 31st January ... or February 4th (depending on which source you check.) Either way, I'd better go soon. I will report back.
