Black bleeds into white with a liquid grace. The surface of the rice paper becomes mountain ranges, valleys, and striated ground, shuddering as it swells with ink. A formless horizon, a flash of light, blinding white gives way to a hand holding an invisible brush, painting the shadow forms of mountains and water—shan-shui, the Chinese word that signifies landscape. This landscape, however, is not primarily composed of images. It is a series of homologous flows and processes that give way to shape-shifting forms. It is an amalgam of intensities flowing at a common frequency. Busy red blood cells merge and morph into vermilion ink moving in rivulets across rice paper, swollen with fluid.
