Nirvana 2 is the centre piece of a triptych that I painted for the feature wall on my stand at The Other Art Fair London 2023.
I wanted each canvas to work equally well on their own as also the three canvas piece that I painted.
My vision for the piece was to be of a heavenly setting, where the viewer is taken to a calm and tranquil state. I wanted to create not just a painting but a mood and scene to flow across 3 canvases.
Nirvana, a state of freedom from sorrow & happiness but also an ideal or idyllic place.
My largest painting to date. I like to work on a large scale, to give me freedom of space and composition, creating bold fish and lily pads contrasting with the subtle green of the water.
I poured washes of water mixable oil over 3 canvases, then moved the oil in a way to simulate the flow and movement of natural water. My passion for painting koi comes from living near beautiful lakes with carp ponds near by. Koi are a symbol of good luck and spiritual abundance. I painted three koi in each canvas, totalling nine which is also a significant lucky number.
The colour pallet that I use for my artwork is influenced by current colour trends in interiors and also inspired by nature.
