A. Karimov's works
Idea and composition
Old tools and new techniques
A favourite motif repeated in many miniature compositions is charh, a symbol of the eternal cycle of life. Karimov has also experimented with vegetative patterns called ghirih, generally used as a background to miniatures.
Miniature painting has very specific requirements to both the graphic sequence and the materials. Karimov paints his miniatures on leather or paper made still prepared as in the days of old. Leather is stamped, and the resulting impression creates a kind of a frame for the main composition.
