This art piece is inspired by the balances of love, especially growing love from that first moment. I played with the idea of the fish reacting to one another in their first instant with opposing visual reactions, though quite the same emotions within. I create a realistic mix and dreamlike abstract impression in the tail. I use heavy splashes of paint to express water-like movements. You’ll see up close in person a resin effect in areas. I have been creating my own emulation of resin effects using various techniques.
I use a paint brushing effect to work in the charcoal, then let the emotions run free with expressive splashes of paint. Both processes are risky as once it is done, no erasing or painting over can happen. I like the risk involved as it’s just like our every day existence- we can’t erase our actions. This large piece is ready to hang straight out of the carefully packaged box. All pieces are shipped with insurance and tracker worldwide.
