James Prosek: Painting with Eels

Inspired by the Japanese art form Gyotaku, a type of Japanese fish printing popularized in the mid-1800s, artist and naturalist James Prosek created a series of pieces in the gyotaku style. But instead of using the traditional large-scaled carp to make his nature prints, Prosek decided to use a rather unusual fish as his creative tool, the eel.

      Regarding “Animal Odd Couples”: It’s HIGHLY unlikely that the fawn, Pip, was “abandonded” by her mother. That’s the first conclusion humans come too and it’s ridiculous and tiresome. The mother was probably hit by a car or killed in some other way. Just because humans can be neglectful and cruel to their young doesn’t mean that animals are the same. It is very rare for a non-human mother to desert her baby in the wild.

      Ducks are wonderful creatures. They are also being tortured on a foie gras farm in New York State, and in other facilities. The farm’s PR says that the ducks are treated humanely. Can having a metal pipe shoved down their throat several times a day and their stomachs stuffed to overflowing with mash so that their livers will grow to enormous sizes and become diseased be “humane”?

      We should do more than just look at animals on television. We should all support the humane treatment of animals.
