These paintings are my interpretations of Artemia NYOS, aka Sea-Monkeys. Sea-Monkeys were sold as pets to children via comic books in North America in the 1950s; they were brine shrimp that came mailed in an envelope in a state of cryptobiosis, and when immersed in an aquarium with separately packaged food, would magically come to life. This series celebrates the spectacle of parthenogenesis. Buy one today and let it come to life in your home. Instant pets. Painted on burlap to be extra lifelike.
