Art Gallery Exhibit: The Zen of Ink by Carm Fogt
Opening Reception: August 19th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The Zen of Ink is a show of artwork done exclusively on rice paper. Chinese and Japanese ink are used in a way that pay homage to the ancient traditions of Asian art yet speak to a new age of contemporary aesthetics. Carm Fogt bridges this gap in a way that brings a soothing sense of calm. More than just observing her art you will feel it.
About the Artist:
Carm Fogt was initially drawn to Asian art and design during an eclectic art class and so pursued Chinese Brush Painting with various teachers in Southern California. Though decidedly an abstract painter, Fogt incorporates Chinese calligraphy as a way to bring the essence of Asian elegance to her work.
For more than 25 years, Fogt has studied with Chinese master artists and calligraphers in both China and the US, and was honored to study at the International College of the China Academy of Art, in Hangzhou, in 2006.
She works exclusively on rice paper using Chinese ink and watercolors, along with various other media. Her work can be found at the Artist in Residence studio at The Parker Schoolhouse, the Cherry Creek Art Gallery, Inchiostro, her studio and gallery in Parker and her website www.carmfogt.net.
