Shinichi Maruyama

The stunningly beautiful Kusho series, by Shinichi Maruyama, consists of large scale colour photographs showing the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces, capturing the two colliding liquids milliseconds before they merge into grey.

These photographs display the chance element of the process exemplifying the Japanese concept of wabi sabi – the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.

The Nihonga series, also by Maruyama, emulates traditional Japanese paintings, using photographs recomposited and composed as an expression of Ma, the use of negative space.
