It's only a coincidence that this image and post follows my lizard report, but I like the connection. Brandon Ballengée's skate was one of the works in a very interesting show at Archibald Arts we visited on Saturday. Ballengée is an environmental artist fascinated by fish and amphibians, notably lizards. In a remarkable show of haunting images of nature, and our corruption of nature, "Cleared and Stained Clearnose Skate" was the beautiful elephant in the middle of the room.
