24 x 36 Asian Japanese Koi Fish Landscape Seascape
  • 24 x 36 Asian Japanese Koi Fish Landscape Seascape
  • Acrylic Painting | 24" x 36" x 3"
  • acrylic on canvas
  • This painting shows a Japanese “Koi” fish swimming upstream. “Koi” is a Japanese word meaning “carp”. In Japanese, “Koi” is a homophone for another word that means “affection” or “love”. Koi, are therefore, symbols of love and friendship. A Koi shown swimming upstream can represent good luck…it may also show non-conformism because the Koi does not go with the flow…it swims against it. Swimming upstream can also mean persistence and a willingness to go on. A Koi swimming up river can represent a person who has overcome various obstacles and not only does he/she keep standing, but is also victorious. The painting has a traditional Japanese feel with a contemporary touch. The variations of grey receding into black give the painting a feeling of depth and provide sharp contrast to the bright, warm colors of the Koi itself making the subject really stand out. The splashing water and rolling waves are used to imply motion. It is painted on a museum quality gallery wrap canvas which measures 24 x 36 x 2.5 inches with fine acrylic paints and finished with a protective varnish. The sides are staple-free and painted so it can be displayed “as is” or framed. The Transparent "COPYRIGHT" watermark across the photo DOES NOT appear on the actual painting. This is an original painting...NOT A PRINT. It is signed by the artist. Copyright 2010 Shawn Morrissey ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
