Description

Elasmobranchs of Gathaagudu (Shark Bay); an art piece that illustratively documents the 52 incredible species of sharks, rays, skates and sawfish of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area.

Her shape is that of thaaka (shark in our local Malgana language), and specifically the majestic tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier), the keystone predator species of the bay. While Shark Bay is aptly named, it is actually the small nervous shark/whaler that you’re most likely to see, very visible in the large schools they congregate in the shallows of protected bays.

Since living in Shark Bay, Sofie has developed a deep appreciation for the marine life that inhabits this special part of the world, the elasmobranchs in particular. One of her favourite past times is to scout the seas of Shark Bay, looking for sharks and rays to admire.

The list of the 52 species is an amalgamation of that compiled by the Shark Bay Ecosystem Research Project and the Western Australian Parks and Wildlife Services.

This piece is the 4th in Sofie’s limited edition ink series, following The Anchor (2018, edition sold out), Oceanic Rotunda (2019, edition sold out) and Lust for Lustre (2022).

THE DETAILS

The limited edition prints are available in two sizes:

– A2 (410 x 594 mm): edition of 100 prints
– A1 (594 x 841 mm): edition of 25 prints

The print is of an original, hand-drawn, ink pen illustration. Each print is hand-signed and numbered by Sofie and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. Prints are printed by Fox Lab Fine Art on beautifully textured and sustainable hemp fibre Hahnemuhle fine art paper. The hemp paper has a smooth off-white appearance, and due to the nature of this natural material, there are some imperfections within the paper itself, which only adds to it’s charm.
