Oil , Acrylic Resin and Metal Leaf on Canvas

This work by American artist Frank Hyder depicts a group of koi fish swimming in a body of water. Each fish has a unique pattern, however the vibrant red colouring on some of the koi appears to advances towards the viewer, drawing them into the composition. This warm, vivid colour contrasts the cool-toned blue of the water in the background, creating a mesmerizing visual impact for the viewer. Hyder aims to create a unique sensory and visual dialogue with his art, and to leave the viewer with ruminations that remain long after they have viewed the painting. Frank Hyder has held over 80 solo exhibitions throughout North, Central and South America, and has been the recipient of several awards such as a Senior Fulbright Research Grant to Venezuela.
- +Artist Bio
Frank Hyder is a Northern Liberties painter and woodcut artist, with a Masters in Fine Art. He is based in Miami, but has traveled widely in South America and Mexico - claiming the Southern exposure suits him. However, there was a single life-changing experience that made all the difference for this venturesome artist. Hyder spent one year living and painting in the Venezuelan rain forest.
Hyder's art seeks to engage the viewer in a sensory and visual dialogue. Nature and the dynamics of light are his subjects. He desires to create a metaphysical reality of intense light and shade where forms appear and dissolve, to dream with eyes open, to feel without touching and to feel touched by the very experience of seeing the painting.
