Abstract Sumi

My interpretation of minimalism uses Sumi-e technique with inks or acrylics, using paper from fine to heavy, wood panels mainly.

There are some artists in Asia that are moving away from the figurative form of Sumi-e with its concentration on landscapes, plants such as bamboo and animals and birds. Some historical works such as Hiroshige’s waves are early examples, while Gao Xingjian, who won the Nobel prize for his writings, has done some wonderful abstracts.
