Sumie by Polish Artist Mariusz Szmerdt

Post  Kakejiku on Sat Oct 22, 2011 12:20 am

This painting was done by the very talented Polish Artist Mariusz Szmerdt. I requested him to complete some American themed paintings because several bonsai artists had written or spoken to me about not being able to understand the intricacies of Japanese displays, and a desire to have pieces that provide American themes to display with trees.

I know that the moon should be a singular piece for a Japanese display, but think outside the box and put a native American tree in to display with the scroll and I think most American bonsai artists could create a display with strong sentimental resonance....

In designing this scroll, I thought it would be best to keep it very simple. The Fukuro Hyougu style fit this bill. The tan/dust color of the cloth was used to represent the desert sands of the southwest. I used the grey suji (Suji are the thin strips of cloth) and Nezumi (Mouse Colored) Kakehimo to be complementary to the clouds in the picture. The Dark Blue Jikusaki are ceramic and were used to represent the dark night time sky.

I was really pleased with how the scroll turned out, except for a small section of the suji in the Ten section. Dimensions are as follows:

Name in Kanji Name in English Size in Bun Size in Inches
天 Ten 80 9.54
筋 Suji 1 0.12
天 Partition Bottom 35 4.18
紙本の幅さ Artwork Width 118 14.08
紙本の長さ Artwork Length 227 27.08
柱 Pillars 19 2.27
地 Chi First Partition 30 3.58
筋 Suji 2 0.24
地 Middle Partition 11 1.31
地 Bottom Partition 57 6.80
掛け軸の幅さ Scroll Width 156 18.61
掛け軸の長さ Scroll Length 443 52.85
