Sumie

Sumie or Suibokuga is n ink and wash painting seen in Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam. Various tone is expressed by ink concentration (notan or light and dark) created by the amount of ink stick ground in water. Effects are also created by speed, force, thickness of the brush strokes creating effects such as kasumi (faint trace) and migimi (smudging). Sumie is in this sense created by the meditative concentration of the artist focused on the space between the paper and brush.

Do koalas sing lullaby to their babies? ... in the morning light...

Deep Ocean


The ocean is a world deeply known. Ama, women divers, plunge into their world that is 'my own, beautiful place'. Not romanticising but Mishima Yukio's novel Sounds of the Waves (Shiosai) gives us the glimpse of the world. Perhaps the fascination is the enticement of the world, from which you may not be able to return, like Eurydice. In our radiophonic story of ama women Waiting for the Tide (ABC Radio National, 2007), Tony Barrell gave a brilliant reading of the women plunging into the ocean deep.
