Like any one else, I have dreams, fantasies, imagination, and vision. I often contemplate the infinity of time and space. I also ponder spiritual, supernatural, and mystical experiences. All of these defy description or expression in realistic images.
The ink marbleizing technique originated in ancient China. It became a sacred art of painting on water practiced by Shinto priests in Japan from the 12th century on. The rhythmic and swirling lines and shapes created by this process invariably suggest the images of moving clouds and water interlocking with mountains and rocks. Inspired by Liu Guo Sung’s work, I started to explore this technique and concept in 1982 to express my spiritual, visionary, and dream world.
