SAME-SAME BUT DIFFERENT is part of the Fisherman and Mermaid’s Tale series
THE STORY PUT SIMPLY: a mermaid and fisherman fall in love; she transforms her tail into legs after their first year together, to experience the earth with her lover. They became great travellers taking in everything that the earth has to offer them. By their 8th year together they travel less, and the fisherman himself, goes through a gradual transformation. One evening as they walked arm in arm along the sea shore, the fisherman enters the water and transforms into a dolphin; taking them both back to the sea.
This print has been lovingly created from an original painting on canvas that belongs to my 2020, INTO THE LUSH GREEN exhibition that explores the time soon after the fisherman teaches her how to walk. For a short while she ventures into the surrounding lush green forests and mountains to get a feel for the earth under her new feet.
SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT depicts the connection between fish and birds that the mermaid discovers in those early stages.
While drawing simplified birds I felt my hand moving in the same way it did when drawing fish. This fed back into the story and led to a realisation that the birds flew around the mermaid in the same way schools of fish swum around her, underwater. They resonated and protected each other. to the mermaid, birds were like fish above sea level
