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.
