I LOOK AT A LOT OF ARTWORK. USUALLY I’m trying to learn something from it, the process by which it was produced, or something about the person who created it. Other times I’m simply curious. Very rarely does artwork make me laugh.

jSCOTT WELLS IS A GYOTAKU printmaker who works in a technique that few of us have seen and even fewer can pronounce. Until I met Wells, I simply referred to his work as “fish printing.”
However, once you understand the art, the name makes a lot of sense. Gyo, in Japanese, means “fish,” and taku means “rubbing.”

Dogs are part of the fly-fishing landscape, and whether they are obedient or delinquent, cute and cuddly, or just hellhounds with a mouthful of teeth, they’re entertaining. And, as long as they aren’t swimming through a prime pool, and instead are waiting patiently on the bank with not a nail dipped in the drink, they make a day on the water that much better.

I’M FASCINATED BY SCULPTURE, particularly when it’s constructed in a medium in which I have little working experience. So it’s no wonder that I’m intrigued by the whimsical and expressive fish studies of sculptor Joel Nelson.

His landscapes, particularly those with reflected light, create in me the sensation of remembering a dream from which I’ve just awoken. Only the visceral, most essential elements remain, and the extraneous details, which often clutter and confuse, retreat with the dawn. What remains is an impression of the dream, and a record of the memory.
