Paisleyfish

12x12"
Painted and densely quilted cotton fabric.

Provides a glimpse of that little-known denizen of the deep, the paisleyfish.

The artist's irrational obsession with paisley-shaped fish is a result of the childhood trauma of wearing garish hand-me-down clothes from the 1960s. The contours of these paisleys are based on the Paisley and Paisley II fonts created by House of Lime.
