A large scale woodblock by British artist Julian Meredith, depicting an enormous tuna swimming in deep indigo blue water surrounded by his slipstream. The woodblock is a very limited edition print made by the artist on hand-made rice paper and colored with hand-made ink. Meredith is noted for his beautiful depictions of whales and fish, and his works are held in a number of British museums. He has also made huge artworks of whales and fish, including 600 foot sand drawings on beaches, chalk scrapings on limestone hills and rock arrangements in fields designed to be viewed from the air. Meredith’s daughter wrote the following words: “My father lives in a world where wood becomes water which flows into fish which fall eaten to the bone crushed by stone into lime that lives as a whale formed in a field in a sea full of grass where water once ran”
