Piece description from the artist

This piece is from my Koi Pond Series and was featured on the June/July 2015 issue of Professional Artist Magazine, inspired by my back yard koi pond. I begin each painting with laying nets (could be fishing, soccer, lacrosse, etc.) on the canvas creating patterns with spray paint as I move the nets around. When I get a feeling or pattern that works for me I bring the canvas inside to find the reflections, shadows and fish that reveal themselves in the piece. Perforated dry wall tape adds layers of texture and pattern to the fluid movements on the surface of the painting. As a swimmer and a surfer I am interested in what lies beneath the surface and look to find deeper connections to the world through my love – and fear, of water.
