Volunteer Park Koi #4

Volunteer Park Koi #4

Piece description from the artist

There's this incredible park not far from my home in Seattle. At Volunteer Park you'll find 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 is a series of paintings focused on the fish I observed there. This painting is full of vibrant colors and interesting, contrasting textures. To give this painting the feeling of movement, I engraved the background with a pattern of deep grooves, which are reminiscent of the carefully groomed sand found at Japanese gardens. To enhance the variety of textures, I've painted the fish onto a textured specialty paper which is affixed to the background. The fish are full of life, painted with brilliant cadmium yellows, oranges and reds.
