Creating the shapes, the form and the shading allows the marshes of this delta to shine with ripples in the open waterways. This work is created by 20184 lotus impressions, with the repetition of the marks seemingly vibrating into being. 

Starting with a blank piece of paper, a fresh lotus flower and ink, my artwork commences with but one image from a cut lotus stem, then continues into hundreds and thousands of indelible marks. The shading and the density of these impressions produce undulating patterns. A monochrome pointillism

The result is a monochromatic rebirth of embossed stamps varying in hue and intensity, and paintings of austere beauty.
