Moe Nyo’s exquisite watercolours take you on a journey into the beautiful landscapes of Bagan the capital of the First Burmese Empire (11th to 13th century). Moe Nyo’s minimal but evocative watercolours beautifully render the traditional architecture as well as the unspoilt landscape that surrounds them. Moe Nyo pays particular attention to the light and captivates the viewer’s imagination by emphasising specific objects, a tree trunk, a fallen sculpture.
Untitled (Bagan Temples), 2009 – 28 x 38 cm (11 x 15 inches) – Signed and dated by the artist – £300 (unframed).
