Emancipation From Fear –
This painting is a story, and the story is whatever the person viewing it first recognizes. It can be as it appears, a sea turtle at the moment of freedom from the restraints of a discarded fishing net that ultimately, would have ended its life.
Or, the ethereal images of the dolphins and fish could be a symbol of the ever present guidance tirelessly assisting the conscious self, symbolized by the sea turtle, to consider, question, and free itself from the bondage of that which is not true, and its net of fear.
One net is very real. The other net could be an illusion. The question is how much of the imagination can be used to support it, or alternatively, see right through it.
