Chris fraser: Of Fish and Flowers - Art Collector

  Courtesy: the artist and The Art Vault, Mildura

“It all started with a particular blue, fish-shaped vase that I found in an antique shop in the Barossa Valley. Trying to justify the money spent I thought that I could produce a series of still lifes that included fish and flowers. After some time I also became fascinated with a very decorative image of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, by Angela de Meng, and this sparked a number of works including girls, fish and flowers. My main interest was in the purely decorative possibilities of fish and flowers; yet thoughts of childhood wonder, a love of colour and pattern and appreciation of nature continue to surface.”- Chris Fraser artist statement
