Volunteer Park Koi #3

Volunteer Park Koi #3

Piece description from the artist

Located near where I live in Seattle, Volunteer Park is an wonderful place. There's a Conservatory and the Seattle Asian Art Museum, of course. Plus, there are all sorts of walking paths, gardens, a kids wading pool, playgrounds, benches, and sculptures. My kids love it. I especially love the lily ponds that are in front of the art museum. They are teeming with koi fish. This painting is one of several paintings in a series focused on the fish I observed there. The background of the painting is full of vibrant colors and interesting texture, and embossed with deep grooves that are reminiscent of the patterns you might find etched in sand at a Japanese garden. I've incorporated a collage technique, and painted the fish onto a textured specialty paper which is affixed to the background. The fish have bold colors, with silver and iridescent highlights.
