One of my favorite artists was the great Japanese master Utamaro. I especially like his sense of style. The beauty of the calligraphic qualities of his work is incredible.
While my own work has nothing to do with Utamaro, the calligraphic qualities have always been of great interest to me. The flow of the brush marks reminds one of calligraphy but there are differences. My marks appear to be in a 3d universe. One sees layers in space. The light section of the brush mark breaks the picture plane and moves towards the viewer. I like those pixels drifting in space.
