Look­ing at art is never just about “look­ing”. As your eyes meet the graphic dis­plays, ideas emerge. In fact, “art” hap­pens the mo­ment that you start think­ing about what you’re look­ing at or notic­ing your emo­tional re­sponses.

You can be­come con­scious of what you’re think­ing and feel­ing and use your aware­ness to be­come more vis­ual. To trig­ger more thoughts, you can visit a new joint ex­hi­bi­tion “Sip My Ocean” by founders of Arti Cour and mem­bers of the Union of Mon­go­lian Artists.

Start­ing from black and white por­traits to tra­di­tional Mon­go­lian paint­ings to sculp­tures, the ex­hi­bi­tion con­sists of all kinds of art by G. Uu­gankhuu, G. Jaakhankhuu and U. Tsol­monkhuu.

One of the most fas­ci­nat­ing paint­ings was one with two col­or­ful dol­phins on a swirling black and white can­vas, which the ex­hi­bi­tion was named after – “Sip my Ocean”. It cer­tainly looked like a pair of dol­phins from the ocean were be­ing mixed into a cup of cof­fee. The dol­phins were painted with re­mark­able pre­ci­sion. They shared the same col­ors and pat­terns but the way they were “filled” was dif­fer­ent.

The smaller dol­phin on the left was lay­ered into five sec­tions with an out­line of a smaller dol­phin in­side, giv­ing the im­pres­sion that it was fe­male and pos­si­bly preg­nant. Look­ing at the paint­ing this way nat­u­rally made the larger dol­phin on the right side of the can­vas seem mas­cu­line. The paint­ing was ver­ti­cally di­vided into five color­ing sec­tions, or­ange, red with a unique pat­tern, blue with black stripes, blue and yel­low, and the last sec­tion, muddy green.

“Sip My Ocean” ex­hi­bi­tion cer­tainly ex­udes pro­fes­sion­al­ity, per­son­al­ity and artistry through each of its pieces.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play through Jan­uary 6.
