PLATINUM ON KOZO

 

PRINTS ON HAINI KOZO  

 

Loosely nspired by Chinese callygraphy and contemporary ink drawings , my recent work draws on traditions of classical Chinese aesthetics and
philosophy. In the way “the brush becomes an extension of artist’s  body”, my camera becomes my brush, then my  life, and my aspiration.’
 
The ocean is my ink.
 
-- Bruna Stude
 
 
 
Platinum/Palladium hand-pulled photographic print on 100% Japanese kozo paper (paper mulberry bush).
 
Kozo paper is made from renewable mullberry bush branches, the innermost of three layers of bark which must be
isolated to be cooked and beaten before the sheets are formed and made to the exacting standards of Japanese
conservators who work on ancient paper artifacts.
