This interpretation of the castle tea house garden was drawn out from the stain of watercolor splashed across paper. The landscape is built by drawing upon the natural markings left by the movement and drying of the pigments and based on memory and drawing on site at Osaka Castle. This process uses pareidolia, that is perceiving recognizable pattern in chaotic information such as finding shapes in clouds, to define objects. Outcomes are unpredictable, and patience, surrender and skill are needed to draw out complex imagery. The pop pink color I used contrasts with the traditional subject matter. This illustrates one of the most appealing characteristics of Japanese culture - the juxtaposition of ancient and ultra modern.
This artwork was made for my exhibition in 2019, Japanizi, and shown at the Macleay Valley Community Art Gallery in Gladstone, NSW, Australia
