ABOUT THE ART
The Sanguinolucous bulbs found in this amazing animal’s two dorsal ‘night-caps’ only glow when they are, infact, dorsal. Unflaggingly optimistic, K. sanguinus lends moral support to flagging tortoises. It possesses the love and diligence of a guardian angel, the intentions of a fairy godmother. This unique brand of ichthyoaltruism is recognized across the oceans, celebrated by seals, embraced by starfish. Whole schools of K. sanguinus have been seen sacrificing their lives in order to de-beach a whale. Let them be examples to us all.
K. choleris, also known as ‘Hater-fish’ or, more colloquially, ‘Haters’, are elite, cruel hunters. They kill for fun, often disregarding the nutritive value of their tortured victims. They are morally bankrupt creatures. They plug gills and tear fins. Some marine biologists invoke the word ‘evil’. Is this hyperbole? Where lies the line of evil? Targeting the calves of blue whales, collectively chewing into the infant’s doll-house sized heart, swimming in broad ecstatic celebratory hoops in the purple water as the little leviathan’s mother mourns unimaginably—is this evil?
