A japanese inspired portrait of a man caught in the moment of epiphany, a philosophical lesson, in energy.
A Japanese inspired portrait of a harvester. She is the harvester who picks fruit in Autumn while new flowers blossom around her, ready to fruit in the spring. Autumn is another spring for those optimists who plant seeds in the spring, thus she represents continuity and fertility. She is open at the neck, bursting open like a flower to release her deep dark nectar, a symbol of all she has to share. Her essence, her universe.
The Koi fish is a symbol of longevity, harmony and perseverance. This Japanese inspired artwork represents a moment of supreme realisation, where 陰陽yīnyáng, the concept of opposite forces operating in balance occurs in this representation. The man is consumed by these forces, caught in a moment of epiphany, realising and perhaps releasing ones negative energy. An energy that sometimes is so numbing and so brilliant that it takes over us, and enslaves us. The epiphany strikes, transforming your mind and vision, which allows for the continuation of positive self-development.
