IN FULL SAIL

By

 

VLADIMIR KUSH

Fantasy ghost ship: Appears in the poem Airship by Mikhail Lermontov describing a fanciful journey and miraculous posthumous apparition of the Emperor Napoleon who died and was buried on the island of St Helena in the Atlantic ocean in 1821. The story mentions a ghost-ship that is speeding to its shores every year on the anniversary of the deposed monarch's death.

 

The Flying Dutchman (De Vliegende Hollander): A legendary ghost ship that is doomed to sail forever, never making it to the shore. It is usually seen from afar, sometimes in a halo of light. According to the legend, when the Flying Dutchman comes across another vessel, its crew tries to communicate and send messages ashore addressed to the people who have been long gone. Such a meeting was regarded as a bad omen among the seafarers.

 

Cutty Sark: The word 'sark' is Scots for 'short chemise' and cutty suggests that it is far too short. The nickname refers to the famous Scottish Witch Nannie Dee whose figure is gracing the bow of the vessel (a half-naked young woman clutching a horse's tail). The owner John Willis decided to use it for a new clipper he ordered after seeing a painting of a flying young Witch in a nightie - the heroine of the poem Tam O'Shanter by Robert Burns.

The fantasy element in the painting is undeniable: the very ship, its sails and more unexpectedly, its masts, are all formed by the wings and bodies of the giant dragonflies! We see clearly the 'sailors' sliding swiftly up and down as they set the unusual sails at the captain's command. We see those fantastic sails shining with a cold luster and a seasoned navigator at the bow watching closely for any suspicious maneuvers of the other ships out at sea. Strengthening the sense of an intense vigil are the 'oculus' wings on both sides of the rostrum! 

 

To continue the flight of fantasy we could trace an analogy between this undoubtedly aggressive (dragonfly - 'flying dragon') clipper and a pirate ship - note the Jolly Roger among the flying flags. It is certainly very different from the 'peaceful' butterfly ship by the artist, Departure of the  Winged Ship.

Captain Drake's Pipe

 

By VLADIMIR KUSH

HUMAN WAY

The setting is the historical moment of defeat for the Great Spanish Armada (130 ships) sent by the King of Spain to the shores of Britain to settle, once and for all, the claims of the English to naval supremacy.

 

It is August 8, 1588, the English Channel, North Atlantic and we can imagine what it was like on board the ship of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 'chief privateer' Francis Drake. Before the final battle off the coast of England a number of old sea dogs have gathered here to confer together.

Having listened to what other captains had to say, the pirate in charge would take over exclaiming:

"I've heard you out, now it's my turn and I say the fight is on tomorrow!" And he banged his fist on the table, fingers still gripping the favorite pipe, hand assuming its shape.

 

At that moment each of them remembered the women they left behind at home in England.

Debra Lynn

Deborah’s process of painting is inspired by the old Dutch Masters. She uses their technique of multiple layers of glazes to achieve rich vibrant colours that have life of their own.

 

Her nebulous and galaxies can have up to 15 to 20 layers of glazes. Then she becomes her own alchemist as she creates her own phosphorescent paint from a strontium aluminate powder.

 

This element is what absorbs the light during the day to release it through the night into your homes for your pleasure. The strontium aluminate is combined with europeine and creates the longest lasting photo luminescent phosphorescence, yet known.

The result is a single painting with two aspects.

CHERISH

Water Colour

18" x 24"

"The purity of emotion felt by a parent for their young is singular, deep, soul-felt, almost a rapturous anguish, breathing in the scent of the new born, helping them take their first steps, enfolding them in our love when they hurt or are unsure or afraid.  Not only do we love, we cherish, which is to nurture, be-love the other, offer patience and watch over them.  With these heart-felt emotions and wealth of feeling, our young grow strong, stable, adventurous, but deeply respectful of all our hearts and minds can provide.  Together that special bond of parent and child becomes unassailable through all life's tribulations and joys."

Sold individually or as a set. Shown: 15" x 35" each

Custom dimensions welcomed.

The term "Shou-Sugi-Ban" is an ancient Japanese holistic wood burning technique.  

 

Japanese craftsmen always looking for a finish that would also increase durability and beauty made use of all kinds of burnt wood.

 

Japanese craftsman looked to weathering processes to achieve that atheistic . Fire came to the rescue and provided what they needed. The heat provides a natural preservative, at the same time giving a  unique, artistic dimension.
