The exhibition of Japanese painting Sumi-e has kicked off at International caravanserai of culture Ikuo Hirayama. The exhibition presents more than 50 works by renowned masters in this field of art, including Gayane Matevosyan, who teaches Sumi-e technique. The exhibition also includes works of her 16 students, who by the way are not professional artists.
Sumi-e is a unique technique that combines not only the graphics as an independent art form, but a way of expression and philosophical understanding of the world, self-development and even art therapy personality. Sumi-e originated in China and was brought to Japan by Buddhist monks in the XIV century. But while China calligraphers and painters used only black color, the Japanese masters have enriched the letter with color mineral paints.
- The hardest part is to convey the sheet or the flowering branches in gray or black tone. When we use colored inks, we know that the branch will be brown, and the petals pink. But to paint the flowering branches in black color we need a certain skill - says Gayane Matevosyan.
Every stroke must be as accurate as possible. It is believed that the formation of a concise artistic image demands managing feelings and sensations. If they get into the drawing, then graphic graceful images, rejecting all minor, represent only the essence of all things alive, as if filled with air. Looking at the work of students Gayane Matevosyan, we can say that they adhere to all these principles.
The exhibition runы until February 28.
