Marbled Butterfly Koi #3 Gyotaku & Suminagashi

$950.00

SKU: N/A

This koi fish art Combines several disciplines into one piece; Gyotaku, Suminagashi & Urauchi (fish printing, ink marbling, & wet mounting) to create an elegant piece reminiscent of old Far East Asian ink paintings.

Created by first printing this large butterfly koi onto paper, then taking the successful prints and dipping it into a bath of swirling ink, and lastly wet mounting to flatten for a clean, formal presentation resulting in this underwater deity of the orient. Gratieful to have three attempts make it to a pleasing completion, as quite a few failed throughout the spontaneous nature of the three processes employed.

This original 19.75″x37.5″ piece has already been flattened via the urauchi process and is ready for any type of framing.
