About the exhibition
Japanese Consulate, Melbourne
An exhibition by painters who have met regularly in Carlton, Melbourne, under the guidance of Richard Liddicut. Their practice involves working from traditional sumi e (Japanese ink paintings) and shodo (Japanese calligraphy) models, some western art techniques, and improvisation on all of these.
Intimate, individual landscapes where paper, ink, and water are priorities.
A sincere search to express the Australian bush in sumi e.
Simple, careful stroke based painting in space.
An eclectic mixture of a traditional motif, improvised drawing and abstract play.
