Chinese brush painting (sumi-e), painted by myself in Brighton, UK.
Inspired by a sunflower field in summer, I created this beautiful piece for the Brighton Artists Open House exhibition AOH2023.
This is an original Chinese painting, or sumi-e art, depicting sunflowers. It is hand-painted on double Xuan rice paper, using Chinese natural inks and mineral colors, in a contemporary style that combines traditional materials with Western oil painting techniques.
I have incorporated some calligraphy writing in cursive script, which translates to 'Sunflower memories,' along with the season, year, and location of creation in Brighton, UK. The text is read from right to left.
It is signed, dated, and stamped with stone seals that I personally carved. The two seals on the top left bear my surname and first name. The one on the top right signifies meditation, and the one at the bottom left represents best wishes.
The vivid yellow of this painting brings back fond memories of my visit to the south of France. I hope it brings you as much joy as it does to me.
