Japanese Sumi Ink has been watered down and then carefully brushed onto tengu-jo tissue creating a skin deep drama.
Great architecture and interiors are always a wonderful source of inspiration. The contrast of the cream coloured walls and black iron in this staircase inspired me to create these works of art using kozo paper, sumi ink and my basic sewing skills. I first drew lines with ink on the handmade paper and then cut them into pieces. I rearranged the segments and stitched them back together. I love how the idea of rigid lines can be transformed into something languid without losing their character.
