“Water Sound”- Upcoming Show at Zephyr

I’ve got a show coming up at a local diy venue in Santa Fe, Zephyr! There will be an opening & a suminagashi workshop as well. Not all of the pieces I’m posting here will be there, but these are all large works (22″x30″) and most of them will be for sale. The show will also feature a few other, smaller pieces.

Ah! The ancient pond
As a frog takes the plunge
Sound of the water

Sumi-A-Day

https://sumi-a-day.tumblr.com/

The Sumi-A-Day Tumblr is an ongoing art project by artist collective Maternal Mitochondria. Every day, a new piece of suminagashi! Suminagashi is a Japanese printing technique that creates unique monotype prints using ink and water. Maternal Mitochondria uses both traditional and modern materials and techniques. Suminagashi is related to Western marbling and Ebru techniques, but brings it’s own artistic merits to the table. Click on the link above or on the Tumblr icon in the social media menu to see some beautiful, one of a kind pieces of art.
