Some years ago I first learned about the amazing paintings of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Australian painter of monumental aborigine images.  I have been thinking about her again in regard to my koi paintings, which are abstract in ways that resemble Emily’s dreamings.   The gesture of the fish swimming is bound up for me with Emily’s lines and dots in their wild structures — so reflective of living things — or of the organic knitted-ness of a night sky’s bright stars still visible in desolate places like the outback.
