Lofty says:

“I love the contrast between the idyllic lakescape on the narrow top of the picture and the surreal ultra frantic fish-eat-fish world underneath. The artist seems to be saying, “Don’t look too deeply underneath the surface” while of course making the seemy underworld the biggest part of this painting. Perhaps he is also suggesting that beauty is shallow and more rare than the real world of scrappy free-for-alls. Given the size of this work, 4 ½ feet x just over 6 feet, one can imagine the magnified effect of its message in any room where it is hung.” - Ursula LeBaron
