  • Overview

    'Flung Ink' is a traditional form of Chinese painting. The goal of this practice is the unity of mind, body and field embodied in gestural mark. Flung ink is regarded as a form of calligraphy and its influence still persists in recent and contemporary art practices including the Japanese Gutai movement. You will explore the relationship between action, energy, mark and residue through the use of both traditional and non-traditional painting materials. Meditation as a method of investigating states of non-duality will be key to the structure of the course.
