The mackerel is a beautiful fish, with a marbled bluey-green back and a silver underside. They arrive in UK seas in the spring, and in summer they move in vast shoals as they hunt for food. Sometimes they work as a team to ‘herd’ smaller fish to the surface of the sea – making it look as though the sea is boiling.
The picture captures a small section of a large shoal of mackerel – reflecting the rush of energy and movement the fish create when forming their large groups. All cut by hand from metallic card and mounted with pins.
It can be mounted as a single picture or as a series of rotated duplicates
The frame is wood with a matt black finish.
Dimensions: (h) 250mm x (w) 250mm, (d) 50mm (30mm front edge)
