Wabi-Sabi Painting

I took an online class of Wabi-sabi and immediately felt in love with the concept. I used acrylic inks, India inks, acrylic high flow paints and Lotka paper.

In traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence, specifically impermanence, suffering and emptiness or absence of self-nature .

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
