Triptych "Games" The painting is the winner of the online contest "Painting of the Soul".
The triptych "Games" is a mixture of Chinese painting, as a medium, the cultural codes of China, my observation of the reactions and behavior of people on the Web, seasoned with personal reflection on an unprecedented pandemic situation.
People play Games. "Small secrets" is a nice child's game when you need to hide something expensive. Most often, "secrets" were collectively buried in a tiny hole, having previously arranged it with leaves and sticks.
Me and the guys from the yard played this game. Someone hid foreign chewing gum wrappers, that gum was deficient at that time. Someone hid beautiful stones or glass of unusual color, coins, badges and bird feathers.
Having matured, we continue to play "small secrets", only as a "treasure" we use completely different riches: we hide our good things having fear of pain and disappointment.
To create an artistic expression, the image of a lotus and fish was chosen not by chance. Lotus is a symbol of purity and innocence, while fish is a symbol of wealth, good luck, family happiness and prosperity.
The peculiarity of this painting is that it was created without a preliminary pencil sketch, at once, with a brush, ink and paint.
