Why So Koi?
Florence Yip (2022)
I created this piece as a gift to a dear friend of mine. It serves as a reminder to me to always be grateful for friendship and family. Yin and Yang describes how obviously contrary forces may in actuality have complementary effects on one another. I feel like Yin and Yang provide balance for one another, kind of like how art has helped me balance out my life in the pursuit of medicine. This piece was painted with acrylic and drawn over with pen. I enjoyed creating it as it provided a meditative value, and reminded me to be grateful for my family, friends and the opportunity to go on this medical journey.
