Twenty Six Fish
Oil on Italian Linen - 183 x 61 cm - $14,000
This painting owes its creation to a visit to Tokyo in 1989, when I held a one-man exhibition there at The Striped House Museum Of Art. We were provided accommodation in a very special place with a beautiful Japanese garden. There I saw these fish in a meandering pond that flowed through the whole landscape. I produced several small paintings at the time, but decided to do this larger one for my recent exhibition in Brisbane, which had the theme of “water”.
