Suminagashi Collage – Untitled


Suminagashi paper and drawing – 2015


This minimalist piece of art is part of my collection of suminagashi work. Suminagashi is the ancient Japanese technique of marbling paper decoration, using nothing but water and ink. Suminagashi means “floating ink”.

The suminagashi design was hand made on washi Japanese paper, and then attached as a collage to an acid-free beige cardboard. Black marks made with charcoal.

You can read about my experience with this technique here.
