drawing challenge - japan - balance and harmony





Thinking about this week's dc theme on "Japan", for some reason these pieces passed my mind.
Maybe because of the colors or the subject...
Not sure if they are japanese and not previously exhibited, so you've the scoop:)
They´re about balance and harmony and I've made them in 2005, collage, print and paint, +/- 20 x 30 cm.

That's really lovely Eric. I can definitely see the harmony in these pieces. I especially like the top row on the right. That image really speaks to me. :D Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a lovely and productive one.

Love these - so graphic and the black and white and red combo is always appealing to me! reminds me of fabric or wood blocks- really nice Eric!

Leena said...

That is balance and harmony, perfect for the theme! I like your strong expression and vivid textures:) Leena

The colors are definitely evoking japanese ideas and for me as well the ones with the half moon and the cresent-shaped line!

Truely japanese associations...the colours and textures tell the story. I love the first two and the last one right most. Especially the last one reminds me of a kimono detail, some folded fabric.

Your work does evoke associations and thoughts of Japan.
The Half-Sun on a white square, the architecture, line and space.
I like the collection very much!

Great Harmony in Black White and Red!
I see the Japanese 和 (Harmony) in the composition, one almost looks like the character a little!!
Also I think its very Japanese in that Japan too is always changing and not something fixed, as your works have a lot of movement and change as well. It was fun to play in this weeks DC challenge, and to meet so many creative spirits and see the variety in the theme!!

Tomoko said...

I think I discover something meaningful of Japan.
Happy day!
