About the piece:
With this piece ‘Plenty More Fish In The Sea’ artist Mart pushed the limits of what is possible with negative space and used that to act as a metaphor for how humanity has treated our world’s oceans. Mart spoke about the film ‘Seaspiracy’ and said whatever one’s view is of the film, it has to be applauded for lifting the issue of destructive fishing out of the conservation echo-chambers and into the public consciousness at large. Mart has long felt that communicating this particular issue is difficult, what for the old adage ‘out of sight, out of mind’.
