About The Artwork

Old wooden crutch, reflex hammers, tuning forks, vintage wooden hanger, stethoscope head, medical tin, scrabble tiles, game pieces, medical tins, sphygmomanometer gauge and cuff, glass syringe, toy ambulance, nasal speculum, ammonia inhalants, and more. While endangered in some areas of North America, Docfish are quite plentiful in Massachusetts, even more abundant than Scrod! In fact, the greater Boston area has the highest population of Docfish of anywhere in the world. There are many different subspecies of Docfish; examples include Oculi Pisces, Infantem Pisces, Ossis Pisces, Auris Pisces, Femina Pisces, etc. Despite many differences in traits between the subspecies, interbreeding is quite common, although strangely enough, the offspring of different subspecies often end up as a different subspecies than either parent, and often even end up as a different species entirely, most often Juris Pisces or Pecunia Pisces.

David Joseph is an artist, physician, engineer and inventor who lives on Martha’s Vineyard and in Naples, Florida. As an artist, David’s primary media are found object art and photography. An avid international traveler, he has visited over 120 countries on all seven continents, all 50 states, and over 250 UNESCO world heritage sites, each destination an opportunity to photograph nature, wildlife, and portraits. Unable to travel during Covid, David saw the potential to create art from the mundanity around him. He began to create found object sculptures made of old or used common household items, toys, and sports equipment. Each whimsical, thought-provoking piece displays the balanced composition of a trained artist and the skilled construction of an engineer.
