The Ghost of Triton

My dad and I used to eat smokey kippered herring on saltines, when I was a kid. The tins came with a key that would open the can. If you didn’t do it correctly, a little metal tab would snap off and it was difficult to get the can open.

This scene shows the ghost of Triton, haunting his old haunt. He’s accompanied by old friends. All the eyes glow in the dark. All the eyes except his.

Let us not, dear friends, forget our dear friends, the cuttlefish.

I have a bunch of spoons in ArtScape, which is part of an exhibition called Ebb & Flow. ArtScape runs from July 17-19 and my work will be in Maryland Institute College of Art’s Fox Building; 1301 Mt. Royal Avenue, Baltimore, MD  21217.
