Description

Through the use of ink on paper, the artist works within a martial arts discipline as a framework for mark making. By restricting the manner in which marks are made, a series of ink drawings are created which evoke the energy of a performance, but remove the performer from view.

What remains in terms of scale evokes thoughts of Asian painting traditions, particularly Song dynasty landscape painting, and in terms of content evokes American Action painters such as Jackson Pollock, Sam Francis, and Franz Kline. As martial arts continue to be explored and practiced on a global scale, we see the potential for interpretation and reimagination of what it means to be a martial artist or have a martial arts background when one exists outside the framework of the discipline's nation of origin.
