I-F: Extremes

something a bit japanese inspired...

I can think of nothing more extreme than the contrast between pure black and pure white. Japanese and chinese art and calligraphy especially are so beautiful in their simplicity and use of black. I would love to study sumi-e someday, maybe when I GO BACK TO JAPAN! (no trips planned, but one day, I promise myself I will. I loved it and 5 days was definitely not enough there)

and while i was skulking around looking for some examples of sumi-e painting, I came across this woman's art that completely blows my mind. Her name is Susana b. Endo and lives in New York. I think this is my favourite.
