The Fisherman and The Mermaid - a box framed digital print layered artwork.
This 3-D Layered Digital Printed Shadowbox consists of a high quality digital print crafted in layers inside a white 8" x 8" (20 x 20cm) box frame to create a lovely, slightly theatrical piece of art.
The boat and figures are set in front of the background, as are the moon, clouds and seagulls. There is also a line of waves set in front of the boat so the mermaid really looks like she is dangling her tail in the water.
Doesn't it look like those sail ropes are real? Well, they are, applied by hand for a touch of authentic boatness.
The Fisherman is in love with the mermaid, as she is with him.
They hold very different views on the creatures of the sea; they are his living and her friends, but their love finds a way through.
Their tale is an ongoing theme for me.
