BLUE MARLIN WATERS

Image Size: 36" x 43.75" ()

From the art of the very large to museum quality fine art, Wyland works within a long standing tradition of naturalism upheld by the finest wildlife artists. Blue Marlin Waters is a refinement of Wyland’s passion for studying and understanding the Atlantic blue marlin, a top predator renowned for its agility and incredibly fast swimming ability. Marlin can reach speeds in the open ocean of up to 68 miles per hour. “They are recognized by most people as a sport fish,” Wyland says. “But for an artist they represent something much more magnificent – they are creatures of phenomenal speed, power, and an almost regal beauty.” Wyland’s keen artistic eye reveals a pair of marlin in their hunt for prey, a sight seldom witnessed by man. He further draws our attention to the marlin’s crested dorsal fin and distinctive markings. In 2010, Greenpeace added the striped marlin, white marlin, Atlantic blue marlin, black marlin, and Makara to its seafood red list – a category indicating fish that have a very high risk of being sourced from unsustainable fisheries.
