‘Dragon Artist Chinoiseriez’
This print is a celebration of freedom of movement. In a straight forward metaphor I set free a cluster of dragons from their royal residence, the Brighton Royal Pavilion; where they live in the shape of dazzling chandeliers, delicate paper wall designs, exquisite ceramics and more; to fly joyfully high in the sky. Dragons in Asian culture means prosperity. They are the ultimate benefactors. Often appearing in the most intricate and elevated form or arts. To name the print I have combined two words: the word ‘Chinoiserie’ that relates to the European decorative style that in XVIII and XIX c. uses historic Asian elements and ‘ez’ that are the endings of my two Spanish surnames ‘Martinez Rodriguez’.
Digital pigment print from original ink drawings. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks. Available in sizes A0,A1, A2, A3 or A4 as limited editions of 100. Each print is individually signed and numbered.
This Dragon Artist print shows a cluster of Dragons flying over Brighton Royal Pavilion. It is a fancy take on the fact that the interior of the Royal Pavilion is decorated in Chinoiserie style with the depiction of dragons appearing in ceramics, wall paper, lamps and so on.
The inspiration for the creation of my dragon looks towards the East again at South Asian dragons around 1244 from the Southern Song dynasty dragons by artist Chen Rong. He painted a paper roll called ‘Nine Dragons’. It is a handscroll painting that depicts the apparitions of dragons soaring amidst clouds, mists, whirlpools, rocky mountains and fire, the painting refers to the dynamic forces of nature in Daoism. The depicted dragons are associated with nine sons of the Dragon King, while the number nine itself is considered auspicious in Chinese astrology and folk beliefs.
