Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Marker on Canvas.

As I was discovering the city of Seoul during a (too) short trip at the end of 2016, I noticed that the south korean capital was filled of top fascinating locations to visit. In front of the Gyeongbokgung, the Deoksugung (two royal palaces), the Changdeokgung (prospering virtue palace), the Jongmyo (confucian shrine), the Jogyesa (bouddhist temple) or any other religious or historic building, every occidental visitor (like me) is amazed by the size and the high quality showcase of the city heritage. Every site is well preserved and restored. I was really fascinated, particularly by traditional buildings and their colourful and graphic ornaments, but also by the contemporary architecture.

I used exactly the same colour tubes that in my "Seoul Dancheong Kakemono" but for a very different subject : a landscape of Seoul, mix with tradition and modernity, with a little touch of geometry.

Partie à la découverte de Séoul lors d’un (trop) court séjour fin 2016, je remarquais que la capitale sud-coréenne foisonnait de sites d’exceptions à visiter, tous plus fascinants les uns que les autres. Que ce soit devant le Gyeongbokgung, le Deoksugung (deux palais royaux), le Changdeokgung (palais de la prospérité), le Jongmyo (sanctuaire confucéen), le Jogyesa (temple bouddhiste) ou encore un des nombreux autres édifices historiques et religieux, tout visiteur occidental (tel que moi) en prend plein les yeux, tant le patrimoine de la ville est impressionnant par sa taille et la qualité de sa mise en valeur, extrêmement bien conservé et restauré. J’ai réellement été fascinée, notamment par les constructions traditionnelles et leurs ornements colorés et graphiques, l’architecture contemporaine n’étant pas en reste étant donné la grande modernité de la ville !

J'ai utilisé exactement les mêmes tubes de couleurs que pour le "Seoul Dancheong Kakemono", mais pour peindre tout à fait autre chose : un paysage de Séoul mélangeant tradition et modernité, et dans lequel on retrouve aussi un aspect géométrique.
