November 15 – December 1, 2008
Opening reception: November 15, 2008 at 3 p.m.
XanaduART gallery is pleased to present a collection of landscapes inspired by the beautiful Arkhangai, Mongolia. In August, 2008 XanaduART gallery artists traveled to Arkhangai, visiting its many scenic sites, including the White lake of Terkh (Terhiin tsagaan nuur), Horgo mountain (an extinct volcano) as well as Arkhangai’s many other places of interest. Their impressions are hereby presented to the public.
The exhibition brings together works by Yo.Dalkh-ochir, S.Mashbat, D.Batzorig, T.Enkhbold, Z.Osokhbayar, B.Badral, B.Orkhontuul, D.Batkholboo, Ts.Odgerel and B.Ganbaatar. Given the artists’ background, the works presented greatly differ from the traditional Mongolian landscape school. While traditional landscapes tend to focus on the serenity of the Mongolian steppe, T.Enkhbold’s quasi-abstract expressionist paintings are full of energy and intensity. On the other hand, Z.Osokhbayar’s almost monochrome paintings impart an eerie sense of calmness in depicting the Horgo mountain surrounded by the lake.
