Popular Black and White Expressionist Paintings
Original Ink And Acrylic On Canvas Painting of Buddha, "Four Types of Lotus"
Working in black ink and acrylic paints on canvas in an illustrative style, Rawat Vongla renders a richly-detailed scene featuring Buddha and a lotus flower. In Buddhism, the four stages of the lotus blossom represent four types of people and their distance from enlightenment. The lotus rising up above the water will readily bloom and achieve enlightenment; while the budding blossom at the water's surface needs further knowledge and understanding to do so. The under-water lotus will eventually attain enlightenment, after extensive time and training; but the mud-buried lotus, representing a dull mind, laziness and selfishness, may never achieve enlightenment at all.
Original Signed Painting of Christ the Redeemer Stature, "Christ the Redeemer & the Moon"
Rising above the mountains, the full moon illuminates a Rio de Janeiro icon in pearly light. The statue of Christ the Redeemer embraces all with arms wide open. Dayse Diaz successfully conveys the magnitude of the renowned sculpture, which stands atop Corcovado hill, 709 meters above sea level.
Titled "Cristo Redentor e a lua" in Portuguese.
Original Signed Horse Painting from Brazil, "Neptune"
Ghost-like, a magnificent white horse seems to glow in the night. Moonlight caresses the rippling mane and silken tail, illuminating large, intelligent eyes. "Neptune," artist Dayse Diaz muses. "Neptune is the son of Saturn, the brother of Jupiter and Pluto. He is the god of sources and rivers. He is the creator of horses and is inseparable from them."
Titled "Netuno" in Portuguese.
Original Black & White Painting of Rio de Janeiro Icons, "Rio in Black and White"
Rio's colossal art deco sculpture of Christ the Redeemer dominates this painting by Roberto Goncalves. The Cathedral, the Arches of Lapa and Sugarloaf Mountain are dazzling in the moonlight. Working in black and white, Roberto Goncalves depicts icons of Rio de Janeiro.
Titled "Rio de Janeiro em preto e branco" in Portuguese.
