Ink Painting - Zen Yoga - Figurative Sumi-e Japanese Brush Painting - Giclee Print
"Zen" is a giclee reproduction of an original sumi-e (Japanese brush painting) by professional artist Brazen Edwards, using Epson Ultrachrome professional archival ink printed on Somerset Velvet, which has the look and feel of watercolour paper.
The contemplative and subtle posture with this Japanese brush painting is beautiful yet meditative. You're struck with wonder at what this person may be experiencing at that moment. I used traditional soot ink and powerful brush strokes, as I do in all my paintings, in order to create a lasting visual impression. Art buyers and art lovers often remark on my interpretation of traditional Asian masters as I pay homage to their artistic vision but have a contemporary modern twist in my own art.
This painting had the honour of hanging in the Livessence Show at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in 2010.
What is Sumi-e?
Sumi-e is a graceful, contemplative form of painting, enjoyable both to view and to create. It is a style of painting that is characteristically Asian, as it has been practiced for well over a thousand years. Sumi-e may be regarded as the earliest form of expressionistic art that captures the unseen.
Sumi-e literally means ink painting and is an art form that strives to convey the qi (variously, 'chi') which is the essence or spirit of the subject, object or scene in the fewest possible strokes. Once a stroke is painted, it cannot be changed or erased. This makes ink and wash painting a technically demanding art-form requiring great skill, concentration, and years of training.
