Gearworld: Spawning Wall

This particular Gearworld painting has been done for several years, and I never scanned or photographed it, because I had delusions of doing a show of Gearworld stuff. (This was back before I learned how perverse Gearworld was--clearing my schedule to paint it absolutely insured that it would dissolve like gritty smoke. Gearworld does not like to be pinned down. My studio is still full of aborted paintings from this period.)

Don't ask me what it means. How'd the fish get there? What do they eat? I don't know. I'm not in charge here. These things just happen.

Original is 18 x 20, acrylic on gessboard. Prints are available for $10 and $20 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] for ordering info.

I like this, the illusion of glass and water are sometimes difficult to do and this is done really well.

I love how in one of them the water dried up leaving cute little fish bones. Very nice detail.

Hmm. I notice that the only test tube that isn't corked has a dead fish in it, while the corked ones have live fish. Dunno what sort of unconcious symbolism that could be, but it's just something I saw...:shrug:

This is kind of why i got myself a beta, to have something floating in a tube of some sort that's swimming around. I like that it's living because it's interesting, other wise might have settled for something in fermaldehide which would be interesting too!

Dead fishie.. *tear*

But it's so wonderfully, deliciously bizarre. Gearworld needs more love.
