Calligraphy paper, ink, soil, porcelain, PVA
35*35cm each, displayed in glass sheets
Jingdezhen, China | 2011
This short series of sketches use ink, porcelain and soil sprayed onto the surface of thin calligraphy paper, built up with layers of rice. The effect on the paper is to make it feel like an old document, unexpectedly found and possible offering some great truth. The marks created on the surface from the rice and sprayed materials resemble things from the micro/macro world - from single celled organisms to galaxies in outer space.
