Against the Current
$1,100 – $1,225
Among the splatters of red, ash and Cobalt blue two Koi Carps languidly swim, seemingly drawn to the somewhat translucent red lotus flower. Known to go-with-the-flow, Carps seem to question the forceful pull of the current and the surrounding disarray instead magnetized by the alluring image of the lone red lotus which beckons them.
The creator has captured the mundane tranquility of ordinary fish in water whilst incorporating their own version of turmoil into the creation by integrating the complexities of the concept. He has seized Carp’s magnetic focus amidst the surrounding chaos, from the linear graph-like sketches of the fish to the harsh brush strokes of ash colored acrylics immersing them with light strokes and splatters of cobalt blues, turmeric yellows and darker, muted pigments.
