In East Asia, sumi ink, the primary medium for writing, has continued also to be the most important medium for painting, which developed in close association with calligraphy. Paintings created in sumi are of two main types. Ink-wash paintings use gradations, blurring, and modulated lines. In contrast, brush-line paintings use primarily thin, uniform lines.
In this exhibition of early modern works from Japan, we explore the creative potential of sumi ink in fascinating examples of both ink-wash and brush-line paintings. These artists compete to display their individuality in cleverly devised uses of ink wash or invite the viewer to a tranquil terrain created with stoic brush-line painting.
