Culture Night 2020 at the Tuckmill Gallery, Naas, Co. Kildare
Many thanks to Martina Phibbs for inviting me to demonstrate Chinese Ink Painting Techniques at the wonderful #TUCKMILLGALLERY in Naas, Co. Kildare to celebrate #CULTURENIGHT 2020
Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world.
It is intended to be a meditative and spontaneous art form, capturing the essence of an image or idea with very little attention to precise details. Nature is the heart of Chinese Brush painting with emphasis on form, movement, energy and flow - rather than a photographic style
I demonstrated ‘Held line’ and ‘Flowing form’ techniques on rice paper and silk, and how these materials differ from watercolour paper. I am very fortunate to have my work included in this exceptional gallery.
