Chinese brush painting (sumi-e), painted by myself in Brighton, UK.
Inspired by the peony flowers in my garden this spring, I created this beautiful piece for the Brighton Artists Open House exhibition AOH2023.
This is an original Chinese painting, or sumi-e art, depicting peonies. It is hand-painted on gold flake single Xuan rice paper, using Chinese natural inks and mineral-based natural colors. The style is inspired by Ming dynasty artist Xuwei, incorporating cursive script calligraphy skills and primarily using inks. In this painting, the artist used titanium white to create the flowers.
The calligraphy is in the cursive script of Tang dynasty monk Huaisu.
It is signed, dated, and stamped with stone seals that I personally carved. Two seals bear my first name and surname, and another one represents meditation.
Painted in my home studio in Fiveways, Brighton, Plum Blossom Ink Art.
The original painting has been backed with mulberry paper and then framed in a bespoke oak frame.
Dimensions of the original art: 33cm x 66cm, or 13" x 26".
Dimensions in the bespoke oak frame: 40cm x 74cm, or 16" x 29".
