While calligraphy began 4000 years ago, pulp painting is a modern development using paper pulps collaged on a base sheet while wet, then pressed and dried.
Using fragments of calligraphy from her work and embedding them into paper pulp shapes and drawings has resulted in artwork which is a marriage of abstraction and writing text with the spirit and aesthetic of Japan pre-eminent.
Rona Conti’s traditional calligraphy will be displayed alongside Soosen Dunholter’s prints of stacked stones.
Closed November 8 – 14 and Thanksgiving Day.
