Framed Paper Art ‘Circle of Koi‘ by Amanda Deadman
Amanda Deadman’s framed paper art stems from her fascination with patterns and shapes in nature. ‘The Circle of Koi’ beautifully captures the movement, reflections and shimmer of shoals of fish.
This piece is the sixth version of Amanda’s ‘Golden One’ collection, but this time featuring koi carp. She paints various sized individual fish in white orange and black watercolours, and one in yellows. Amanda then painted gold spirals on the yellow one and silver spirals on all the others.
Each fish is shaped by hand and mounted on a small foam board plinth to enhance the three-dimensional effect. This helps to cast interesting shadows depending on where the light is coming from.
The whole piece is framed in a glazed (Perspex) white deep box frame.
Bespoke colour combinations and sizes are available on request.
Materials used: Watercolour and metallic watercolour on watercolour paper, foam board, and a white deep box frame glazed with Perspex.
