Sumi Doodles On Rice Paper
The strongest elements known to man are primarily the metals and other solids. However, the power of fluids had always been underestimated. In this series of doodles, I start out with flat paper and as I apply the sumi ink, the paper just bows to the ink's will to pull it into any direction it so desires. The resulting texture after the ink dries is forever represented in the simple doodles. They say the pen is mightierl than the sword. My corollary to that is behind every pen's power is the ink that flows through its veins.
