The term “shanshui” meaning mountain and water is the traditional form of Chinese painting using a very thin paper.
Whilst traveling to China I was introduced to the ink wash paper, particularly Anhui Red Star paper and calligraphic practice papers. They are tissue thin, can tear easily when wet, yet strengthen when dry from absorbing ink.
I have incorporated these special papers in my artwork for many years, experimenting with different mediums and manipulations to create contemporary artworks. I have used many layers of the papers, using staining and cutting methods to produce the artworks in the Marks in Time exhibition.
