Swim Like the Koi Fish

Resilience was created as a result of many hurdles that were put in my path. I had a choice to examine new ways of dealing with adversity. Besides meditation and talk therapy, I sought out exercise, yoga and art-making. I chose to examine the Koi as an origami structure because they signify perseverance. In Japan, the Koi represent strength by swimming upstream and surviving difficult living conditions.  The Koi fish are housed in a pocket sleeve and travel or swim around the book.  An accordion book with explosion pop-ups and comprised of 18 panels. Drawn and printed on Canson Miteinte, Ingres, Bugra pastel, Lama li and Washi Japanese digital papers,  7" x 11" x 1.25". Comes with a slipcase, series 1-5,  $1500 each.
