For this work, the artist uses the symbol of a goldfish swimming freely in harmony with life on a black background. It symbolizes wealth, prosperity and abundance, and is a guiding omen of happiness in life and love. The image is therefore meant to evoke good memories and bring positive energy. This is helped by calm, balanced colors maintained in gray-gold tones. The artist’s original style captures the flowing movement of water and fish, creating a calming effect for the viewer. The painting represents a continuation of the artist’s exploration of the theme of visually capturing the invisible energy, movement, life force and emotion beneath.
painter / visual artist
An Australian visual artist who lives and works in Sydney, in the port city of Balmain. With a Master’s degree in Cross Disciplinary Art & Design from the University of New South Wales (MCDArtDes, UNSW) and years of experience working in the arts and culture sector, she expresses this wealth of knowledge in her art practice. She has participated in many international exhibitions and art fairs.
Influenced by major artistic figures such as Brett Whiteley, Helen Frankenthaler, John Olsen, Hans Hoffman and Mark Rothko, she is an action/gestural painter, and her work is created in the style of abstract expression. Thus, she explores developed, experimental techniques and processes. She builds each work using a variety of media, creating depth through transparent layers that reveal hidden dioramas.
Her works are inspired by memory, meditation, music, culture and the essence of Australia. She continues to explore the theme of capturing the invisible energy, movement, life force and emotion hidden beneath the surface of Australia’s complex culture – while reflecting the palette of its natural landscape.
