Vladimir Kush Presents His New Artwork 'Dragon Defence'
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - Sep 15, 2020 - The artist and founder of a new branch of art, named Metaphorical Realism, released his newest artwork titled “Dragon Defence” Oil on Canvas (26”x46”) which was sold just three days after its release. The Limited Edition of 188 Giclee on Canvas (25”x45”) is now available at Kush Fine Art Galleries.
Dragon (from the Greek δρᾰ́κων) is a ‘winged serpent’, sometimes spewing fire. Dragon is the luckiest of the Chinese zodiac signs, Heavenly Dragon being the guardian of the dwellings of gods and their peace. Dragon symbolically represents the four elements – air, fire, water and soil – coming together in the form of this fire-breathing horned creature with eagle-like claws, scaled body and a thorny snail tail.
Down on Earth, the wall was built in such a way as to protect China from the barbaric invasions coming from the North – hence the resulting geometry of the ‘dragon’. Legend has it that a giant dragon guided the builders as to the location and direction of the wall walking along the borders of the country and the workmen following in his steps. People called this wall ‘earth dragon’ because of the high mounds of rammed earth initially used in laying its foundations. Its colors also corresponded with that title.
The Great Wall of China (literally a ‘long wall’), stretching on for 21,200 km, was built in ancient China. It goes along the Yinshan mountain range, taking in all the offshoots and successfully negotiating both the steep climbs and sizeable gorges. It naturally blends into the surrounding mountainous landscape becoming a piece of it. The Wall divides China into the land of farmers in the south and that of the nomads in the north.
In the painting, we see a group of Buddhists gathered under the Dragon flag to consider the barbarian danger from the North. The low-lying fog in the distance allows them to move around unnoticed.
An earlier compilation artwork by Kush titled “Human Way” features the “Dragon Defence” in the background representing his creative journey In our ever-changing world. “Heavenly Dragon”, a Limited Edition on Metal artwork by the artist, shows a member of the Emperor’s family out on a walk along the border of China guarded by the dragons. The outline of the fortification resembles the Great Wall of China.
From a projected concept sketch created by the artist priorly, Kush transforms through metaphor and imagination a masterpiece that allows to discover and explore by building a bridge to the element of unexpectedness that will shake up the viewer and awaken his artistic nature.
