Drawing: Scrolls

The scroll format is one concept that keeps returning to me. I had considered this when I was doing ink drawings with sumi ink on rice paper, but didn’t follow through at the time.  What I keep returning to is this idea that such an extremely long composition dictates that only a small portion of the image is revealed at a time, making the image feel more infinite and enigmatic at the same time. I also like the allusion to Chinese painting and calligraphy, two art forms that greatly influenced the direction of this project.
