“Dancing” is a painting to portray the beauty of a swimming fish and its smooth dynamic. As an animal living in water, fish symbolism is about connecting our life with water element. It is about dynamic, passion, activity and connects us to the depths of our unconscious and self-awareness.
Different from the first version, while it also has red color as its main color element, it also has slight grey shades . The grey shades work to making the parts with red color become more apparent and also symbolize the ‘facade’ of one’s life that is visible to others while these red ‘lines’ indicate the ‘pure’ soul, one’s true self that is being hidden just to adjust themselves to the standards.
Therefore the second version is more like the representation of human’s deeper feelings rather than a symbol of life.
