James Prosek: Ocean Fishes Talk
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Philadelphia, United States
Artist/Author Talk and Book Signing - 6:30 pm
Dubbed “the Audubon of the fishing world” by The New York Times, Connecticut artist James Prosek is known for his detailed and arresting watercolor paintings, which primarily feature fish and other ocean creatures. He showcases his personal impressions of marine beauties such as a 15-foot-long blue marlin through life-size paintings. Through direct observation and imagination, Prosek reveals the subtle colors and forms of fishes often hidden from our view beneath the water’s surface.
In his new book, Ocean Fishes (Rizzoli New York, October 2012), Prosek portrays Atlantic game fish as they are plucked from the ocean, still shining with the hues of life. Join us for a talk and film showing about how he created the life-size paintings for the book.
