China Ink Art at the Met

China Ink Art is the first exhibit of Chinese contemporary art by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. This exhibit focuses on new expressions using the traditional ink medium of Chinese art. The exhibit includes a wide range of works--painting, calligraphy, woodblock prints and more. The two ink on cardboard pieces shown here "Beautiful Dream #7"and "Beautiful Dream #2" by Duan Jianyu were my favorites. The simplicity of the images and the creative use of the surface of the cardboard interest me. "Ink Art: Past and Present in Contemporary China" is on exhibit until April 6.
