Japan Art Tribute

Windy Bamboo by Casey

Tribute to Japan!

I have created a special Gallery Japan. This gallery is dedicated to the courageous people of Japan. It is my small way of giving tribute to a strong nation in crisis. The people of Japan are currently going through tremendous challenges. I want to acknowledge their courage and strength and the best way I know how to do that is through my sumi-e art. Art has a way of transcending horrendous tragedy and speaks to us through our hearts, our spirits, and our souls. Sumi-e exemplifies this concept.

The images I have chosen to show in this gallery are all bamboo. These images are for only display. Bamboo signifies strength and the ability to bend. This quality of bamboo is much like the character of the Japanese people. When the storm winds blow, they bend. When the storm winds cease, they stand tall with strength and integrity. Japan is shaken not broken. Bless our friends in Japan!

Please visit this gallery to view my art tribute and dedication to Japan

Sumi-e by MGCruz

Philodendron by Manuel Garcia de la Cruz

This sumi-e is one of my personal favorites by my artist friend Manuel Garcia de la Cruz. The stem of this plant dances with movement. The painting's composition moves your eye from corner to corner with delight and ease. Manuel is a member of the North American branch of the International Chinese Calligraphy Art and Ink Painting Society (ICCPS).  

Manuel was born in  Asturias, Northern Spain. For the last thirty years, he has lived in Denia, on the Mediterranean coast, where he has his workshop and studio. Manuel hashad many exhibitions locally and in Ibiza. Nature is a strong influence on his work, which centers around  seascapes, mountains, beaches and the countryside.   I am a great admirer of Manuel's sumi-e.  His paintings produce clean, bold brush strokes with brilliant light and color while addressing the spirit of his subject matter. He is an exquisitely talented artist and one I am honored to have in the North American branch of ICCPS. I am so pleased he decided to join the society.
Below is a slide show of some of Manuel's sumi-e. Turn on your volume for beautiful music!
