#20, Sumie Natural, a painting by Veronica C Wilkinson

Sumie Natural

Veronica C Wilkinson

Japanese Kozo/mulberry paper with sumi (stick ink), acrylic paint and coloured fibre papers from Kyoto pasted to the surface.

565 x 415 millimeters


Cape Town, South Africa.


I have painted with Sumi (traditional Japanese stick ink) onto handmade kozo/mulberry paper. Over this I have painted with iridescent acrylic paint and added more textured Japanese papers from Kyoto.


My fascination with the quality of light and its effects are central to the inspiration for the work 'If the color of a soul is light are our eyes the prisms that reflect individual vision?’
