poster for Adventures in Monochrome—Early Modern Japanese Ink-Wash and Brush-Line Painting

Ends in 11 days

Paintings created in sumi ink are of two main types; Ink-wash paintings use gradations, blurring, and modulated lines. In contrast, brush-line paintings use primarily thin, uniform lines. This exhibition of early modern works from Japan explores 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.
