In some towns of the Mexican Republic, once the fishing is done, the fish are salted and hung to dry, thus they will last longer for consumption.
The painting represents several people throwing their nets, in a dynamic composition, with a lot of movement. In this painting, the artist minimizes his color palette, working as a monochrome. It is a painting that was made in the 90’s and was taken up by the artist in 2017.
Abel often says that he constantly dialogues with his works, and this one in particular caught his attention because it demanded a change. Finally he embroidered it giving this wonderful result.
