By Donald Mitchell, Artworks from the Chinese Ink Painting and Calligraphy Workshop 

This artwork made during the workshop had been included in an exhibition BINARIES in the Creative Growth Art Gallery, Califonia in September 2016. Each work in that exhibition presents a rhythm and an aesthetic sense of the artist’s operation of black and white space. For both the artists at Creative Growth and myself, painting is a living process to experiment with the brush, black ink, water, Xuan paper, and our unique sensitivity of using these materials. Playing with black ink, soft brushstrokes, and body perceptions, the artists explored and challenged the relations of black/white, dry/wet, and concentrated/diluted binaries in their artworks.
