Blue Moon Art Gallery is hosting “Uv-3” through December 21, an exhibition by three artists from Uvurkhangai Province, Z.Dorjjantsan, O.Damdindorj, and S.Boldbaatar.
When S.Boldbaatar was asked why the exhibition is called “Uv-3”, he said, “The three of us were born in Uvurkhangai Province, and the major pieces of our lives were spent there, so we decided to name the exhibition ‘Uv-3’.” He said that they are always proud to be called artists of Uvurkhangai Province, because Uvurkhangai is the birthplace of Undur Gegeen Zanabazar, a prominent figure in Mongolian arts.
The beauty of nature is always reflected in the work of Z.Dorjjantsan. He pays tribute to the many different facets of the beauty of the natural world, and in sharing that beauty, he hopes to encourage people to live in harmony with nature. He says, “Mongolians live so closely with nature, and our culture, customs, and traditions are connected to nature.” Z.Dorjjantsan’s “Gobi Winter” beautifully captures, the cold, fresh air of winter in Mongolia’s Gobi.
O.Damdindorj’s “Archer” is always popular with Mongolian audiences. He illustrates the essence of a Mongolian man in this work. His archer evokes power, vision, and confidence. “Sky Morning” gives people a sense of calm, hope, and enjoyment.
S.Boldbaatar’s artwork tries to look at what people cannot see in a physical sense. His art can be more challenging to interpret, because his work always takes symbolic and interpretative measures to convey his view on the world.
