Chinese watercolour on paper


I became enthralled by 'yurei' after a visit to Japan to give a lecture at the World Archaeological Congress in 2016. These watercolours are experiments in marrying traditional Asian materials and techniques with modern composition and abstraction. The yurei (in this case Kuchisake-onna, the "slit-mouth woman") is rendered in an amorphous, limbless form, inspired in part by Bacon's "Three Figures".
