ABOUT THE ART
The striking black Hi on this metalic shiro utsuri and questionable head marking is enhanced by the deep red vase.The Ikebana arrangement is often used in Japanese tea ceremonies Chabana .
Gordon Lavender is a British painter, from Liverpool, in whose work we can recognise a strong inspiration in Asian Koi painting and Koi art altogether. This inspiration of Asia, actually far East, Japan in particular is maintained through fresh, varied composition of a painting, which before else seduces you with its minimalistic beauty. There is no doubt that Lavender has stepped into a deep field of beauty and that his amplitude is a harvest of high inspiration and endless talent. Sometimes it might appear to you that his works communicate brilliantly with Pop Art, with Minimalism and of course with Fantasy. That is not an illusion, because the painter is truly taken by Koi art but above all he is an outstanding postmodern visual artist.
