Koi (Carp) 1 – 2: monotype, collage and stitching on panel, 12″ x 12″ each, 2013, $550 each (sold)

I often use this elongated oval shape with pointed ends in my artwork. It could certainly been seen as a fish-like shape, and because of the orange colors of this piece, I decided to call them “koi” or carp. I love the juxtaposition of rich orange and black with a pale mossy green… it’s like warm and cold, in harmony. Much like enjoying a Japanese garden with a koi pond. (Part of the Urban Skin series.)
