Tree Hug

Trees have commanded a reoccurring presence in many artworks, both landscape and portrait, whether it be  as a central figure or in a supporting role. Their majestic grandeur is hard to ignore in a landscape and they have often been integrated into an aspect of the storyline, for example, reflecting a graceful solitude or conversely a stoic hardness.

Landscape scenes were popular with Chinese porcelain art, the willow, plum trees and bamboo were especially featured. Japanese decorative pottery arts favored flowering blossom and pine trees. As a spiritual and religious symbol, the Tree Of Life was represented almost invariably in all ancient cultures, and it had an ongoing presence in ancient arts. The Art Nouveau movement had botanical and nature themes interwoven through most of its designs, the free flowing shapes adapting easily to rounded pottery forms. The typically vertical orientation of vases and bottles were also a natural fit for decorative tree art.
I don’t have any doubts about the sacred reputation of some trees. I find the spiritual resonance of an oak tree to be quite palpable, invigorating and refined.  Hermann Hesse summed it up aptly in Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte.

“ For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. “

Potters show pots at British Potfest

 

The annual Potfest In The Park exhibition is held  in the grounds of Hutton-in-the-Forest at Penrith, Cumbria on the edge of the Lake Districts National Park. Over 100 exhibitors from around the globe participate bringing together an eclectic mix of pottery and statues. The medieval castle setting seems appropriate for pottery artists plying their wares, this ancient art form has graced the outdoor marketplace since time immemorial.

Potfest provides the opportunity of meeting ceramic artists of international repute selling their pottery in the midst of a community rather than through a gallery exhibition. Initially organised by Christine and Geoff Cox, 2016 will the 23rd  Potfest festival. The marvelous photos here were taken by Christine Cox.

Dreamstones Contemplation

ψ

On a trip to Taiwan I saw a large dreamstone on display in an antique shop in Taichung, which apparently came from a region in the Yunnan mountains which is famous for them. It was around 3 feet in diameter and was mounted on a carved wooden frame. It had an ethereal like visage and seemed to have hidden depths to it. These dreamstones have been revered since the Tan Dynasty ( 618 – 907 AD ) for their unique appearance and were highly valued by ancient emperors, scholars, religious figures, and the aristocracy. Some Chinese scholars believed that dreamstones conveyed the essence of nature more powerfully then a painting. The Chinese word for marble is Dali, which is the name of the main region in Yunnan where the dreamstones were quarried. There are only a few established master revealers living today who have the ability to intuit where to find the marble stone and how to cut it to reveal the hidden art inside.

The shopkeeper suggested that dreamstones reflect the possibility of windows or portals into other realms of consciousness. They are a reminder of deeper mystical worlds that are there to explore and contemplate. Usually the dreamstones are characterized by an ethereal, abstract appearance and an alluring mystique that invites closer scrutiny. They are sometimes chosen if their appearance encapsulates nature forms like mountains, forests and clouds or if they display a fluid dimensionality and mystery. It is only recently that the ancient aesthetic of the dreamstone has been revived in China with the collecting of marble forms in the region of Dali in the Yunnan Province.

Just like the Eastern mandala is designed to invite prolonged concentration, leading to a meditative state, dreamstones have a similar absorbing appeal. Ceramic art and sculpture  also capture this principal, when they have the power to draw you in with their creative design and hold your attention. Raku, which is essentially a random process almost invariably produces ethereal looking results that convey mystique. Other ceramic glazing techniques can also conjure up intriguing surface patterns and features. The appeal of this art is subjective and even a simple shape has the ability to be transcendental. I chose the following pieces based on these dreamstone concepts.

Mark states that his pieces are designed to manipulate your perception. ” They make you want to keep looking at them, but you can’t understand what you’re seeing. It’s almost meditative. The Mandala is an example of meditative art: complex patterns that seem to fold into themselves. There’s a whole science in Buddhism about creating these images you can stare at and meditate.”

Parisian museum Petit Palais

Petit-Palais-entarance-477x347   Above is the  impressive entrance to a museum titled  “ small palace ”, which only becomes small when compared to the monumental Grand Palais, which it stands opposite to. The Petit Palais is located close to the Champs Elysees and houses the Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris, and was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. The  architect Charles Girault based its design on the forms of a trapezoid and it has an internal garden, with ponds edged with sweeping mosaics and columns.

Aside from the remarkable collections on view inside , the building itself is worthy of a visit The Petit Palais holds a significant collection of nineteenth century French art and one of the largest collection of icons from France. Ancient Greece, Rome and the Renaissance. It has on display a unique collection of art from the Eastern Christian church donated by Roger Cabal. Troubadour, Romantic and Symbolist art along with contemporary works are also present. I put together a collection of mainly decorative pieces from both the permanent collection on display and the archives.
