Tonbo – Gentle Wings #3 – SOLD!!

Gentle winged creatures invite us into their simple, quiet lives in these wabi-sabi inspired artworks. Looking at these pieces is like taking a walk along a wooded trail. Scientific research has proven that nature has a calming effect to our inner being, and calm is what this art collage brings to any room it hangs in.

In this piece, vintage novel pages, Japanese text, scrap papers, and rice watercolor paper printed with a dragonfly mix with mulberry paper scraps (a Japanese style paper).  Small twigs add the element of nature.  Deep texture is achieved by building up the background in the same color as the 140 lb. cold press paper base.  The rice paper feature is machine sewn and a transparent fabric is hand-sewn over some of the vintage pages

The frame is included in the dimensions. Signed and dated on the front.

Artwork is inspired by this verse of Scripture:
“I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine.” Psalm 50:11.

Product Description

Assemblage is an area that relaxes me like no other art medium…

Sometimes I like working with a neutral palette – and the idea of “wabi-sabi” that brings a tranquility to my artistic heart…Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese aesthetic, identifying the “way of life” that embraces the beauty of the worn, the long cared for, re-used, re-cycled, re-membered things and celebrates the simplicity of such.
