Himalayan Birch 3

76 x 140 | Handmade Mitsumata paper and dilute acrylic paint
I have been trying to ‘write’ tree in a universal language of marks, shapes and colours. Calligraphy in a language familiar to us all. This one word - tree - could easily fill the rest of my life ...

This banner is painted on handmade Mitsumata paper from Japan which is unbleached and has a beautiful organic colour. The paper allows for smooth flowing brushstrokes and has delicate edges along with the watermarks of the paper makers Su or frame. in the finishing process the paper has been uniformly smoothed and wrinkled in a way that makes the piece look antique.

The banner is suspended from a simple batten and clear thread which can be removed on request if an alternative method of display is desired.
