W-ink! Working with ink and paper brings out a firecracker of possibilities. All that’s needed is a spark of imagination to burst open its potential.
Five ink artists use this ancient medium with a fresh contemporary effect. The supplies are simple: soot, plant and wood. Yet each artist skillfully manipulates their process to push the boundary of traditional ink work practice.
Whether the work is of an image or is abstract, artists with a limited palette and inexpensive tools play with a variety of techniques to produce effects that satisfy their creativity. And serendipity is always welcomed.
W-ink! urges us to take a second look at a medium’s extraordinary versatility and vitality. Artists featured include Karen Dedrickson, Lowell Poisson, Tina Albro, Grace Schlitt.
