Sumi Ink on Washi0000093.5" x 4.5"
Sumi-e is an ancient Chinese and Japanese art form that, in its purest form, consists of varying shades of black ink on white washi paper. It aims to depict the spirit rather than the replication of the subject, relying on beauty of form and notan (light/dark relationship) for its vitality and strength. It requires a combination of control and spontaneity in the brush work that comes only with discipline, mindfulness, and contemplation.
