Floating Ink

Floating Ink

 I start a work with intuitive thinking and try new things resonating feelings. I attempt to experiment with new techniques and materials to express Asian and Indigenous worldviews, connect with nature, and explore diasporic identity formation. I am practicing Suminagashi (Japanese ink marbling) to embody the Japanese Zen philosophy and Chinese Taoism, reconnecting to the spiritual world shared with my faraway Japanese Buddhist family.

The concentric circles of ink and water express nature’s cyclical and rhythmical workings and see everything as a whole. The flows of ink and water are uncontrollable, embracing the beauty of imperfection and the impermanence of all things.

Join me to float with nature.
