In this workshop, you will learn suminagashi, the Japanese art of marbling, which translates to "floating ink". Ink brushes dipped in water create hypnotic, swirling patterns reminiscent of natural phenomena from the grain of wood to the cosmos. Students will explore using different tools and substances to manipulate the patterns while creating monoprints on western and Japanese paper.

Instructor Bio:

Linh My Truong is an interdisciplinary artist and educator working with textiles, video, and electronics. Through her exploration of the Japanese marbling art of suminagashi and her penchant for hard geometric forms, her work finds a place between chaos theory and an ordered universe. Her application of technology uses light to create immersive art installations, bringing traditional art forms into the 21st century.
