The foundation of Splash ink and color painting process is based on principles originating in Tang Dynasty China with a technique known as Po Mo. Essentially the artist freely “splashes” liquid color onto stacks of dampened sheets of mulberry paper. After the wet sheets are left to dry for several hours, they are separated so the real magic can begin: discovering if the resulting dried sheets are abstracts able to stand on their own, or if they can be enhanced with more paint, whatever the imagination sees in the heart of the work!
