Artwork description

This pencil sketch is a pictorial pun on the nature of desire. The romantic union of a mermaid and a diver is thwarted by his cumbersome apparel.

Currently on show in the Keeper's House at the Academy, this sketch is one of Mick Rooney’s ‘snippets that come out of everyday life’: a group of works, from witty musings to intimate family studies, illustrating his engagement with the human condition, dreams and romance.
