Peter Booth (Australian, b. 1940), Shell, 1987, pastel on paper

Lofty says:

This picture is just haunting. What is this shell thinking? What would you hear if you put your ear to it? It seems like it is maybe resting after a long day of being knocked around by the sea and having survived another day not getting “collected” by a beachcomber. Typical of his work, this image is dark, surrealistic, esoteric and maybe even a little erotic (it does depict a screwshell after all). Screwshells tend to densely blanket an ocean floor with live and dead shells, making this portrait of a solitary one all the more mysterious. - Ursula LeBaron
