Yu Kawakita: Water Paintings

  • Posted by on November 25, 2010 in Art
  • The abstract works of Japanese painter Yu Kawakita capture both the rhythm of nature and the event of creation between artist and media. She makes them by applying paint or ink onto a thin layer of water covering a primed surface, then blowing on the liquid to create patterns. When the water evaporates and the paint dries, the process is frozen in time and the work is complete.

    "There are elements in nature that cannot be expressed in a painting," says Kawakita. "This is why I use water or evaporation as a brush to face the shape of change, striving to fix into place something that cannot be fully contained."
