Carpe Diem is a beautiful small, captivating painting, with its focus on two Koi fish set against a dark background, which likely creates a striking contrast. The choice of Koi fish emblems strength, perseverance, and love. The dark water background adds depth and mystery to the piece and symbolize the idea of finding beauty even in obscure circumstances.
This contrast might serve as a visual representation of the message to “seize the day” and find moments of significance and joy even in darker times, seeking balance and harmony as the dancing fishes reminds you of a Yin and Yang interconnection.
The choice of medium, using oil paint, underpainting was made in acrylic, and the surface used is a 24×18 cm clayboard.
Overall, “Carpe Diem” seems to be a thoughtful and evocative work of art, combining elements of symbolism, color, and composition to convey a meaningful message.
