Title: BEAUTY_23
Year: 2021
Dimension: 24x33 cm
Techinque: Japanese calligraphy on paper

Description:
I express the beauty of the fusion between intentionally drawn lines and unintentionally smudged ink.

The paper is Chinese Xuan paper, which is renowned for being soft and fine texture.
Sumi ink is made by rubbing the ink stick on the inkstone to create the best color before writing. Japanese brushes I use are handmade by artisans using sheep's wool.

The title shows the meaning of written words. For instance, beauty → 美
