Western style scroll paintings

Post  Guest on Thu Dec 08, 2011 6:58 am

New scroll paintings. For some time I have wanted some new ways with scroll paintings. I do fancy the Japanese ones I have, but also thought it could have a more western approach without neglecting the Japanese heritage. So now my wife, who is educated art painter, came up with a series of modern western scroll paintings with winter images I will look forward to use in the future. She will produce a series of these sold on my website if anyone should be interested. A series including all seasons will be available with time.

Regards
Morten

For you Bob, I set up two displays today. I miss a blue coloured scroll though, which I think will work better with this winter displays, but just to give an idea about how it looks I used another one (unfortunately my dog ate the dark green one that was good for this time of year too Shocked ).

Best regards
Morten


Lonicera nitida (height: 14 cm) and Potentilla fruticosa (height: 15 cm)

Hi Morten,
Nice idea.
Why you place the paintings on the upper and not on the lower part of the scroll?
The Japanese use to do this because one sits low on the tatami floor as you will know,
hanging in western rooms it is different i think and is placed well,
but here in your tokonoma display the bonsai are placed low.

Hi Sunip

If I understand you right you ask why the scroll is placed low? (The painting can not be attached to the scroll in other ways than it is).
The reason to the low hanging scroll is simply that it is a display made at my workspace in the studio, and not at the normal place I use for it, because it is worked on at the moment. The bonsai are placed at a shelf about 60 cm above floor level, and the scroll is hanging at the wall. It should be levelled higher, but the ceiling does not allow that. So some compromises have been done. In January I expect to be able to use my usual display area with no limits.

Regards
Morten
