A line of black ink forms across the canvas from a swift motion of the hand. Some ink is absorbed by the canvas, some trickles smoothly down the surface. The mark, pre-determined and precisely placed, causes an imbalance on the canvas, and gives rise to a certain emotion, a vital energy. The great masters of the Orient have handled ink – a medium with infinite possibilities – for centuries. Here it becomes the central element of the work. Flat areas of colour are carefully selected and superimposed to achieve an opacity which covers the brush stroke of black ink focal point of the piece’s intensity. Voids are created; white sections brush against colorful shapes. The balance is slowly recomposed.
