Fresh, Raw, Golden-Eyed Bream
This is a highlight of my series of paintings of Japanese seafood packaging. The packaging iconography is very specific for Japanese shoppers, The head looks left, a sprig of parsley (sometimes plastic) is thrown in to represent that the fish is fresh.
This package is deliberately upside down, to signify that this is not to be viewed as a commercial object. It’s a meditation on the beauty and diversity of aquatic life, and a rant against the packaging of death.
