I completed a number of black and white studies of the plants in my studio during the early days of lockdown. This is one of two studies that I did of two Monstera Deliciosa – otherwise known as Swiss Chees plants. What struck me was that I was painting from a curious angle - underneath the leaves, which I peered through to see the sky! I was intrigued by the new leaf slowly uncurling, all its holes intact.
I used the traditional black Sumi ink, made from soot, painted on a very fine Washi paper, made from Mulberry leaves. The chop mark, placed underneath my signature, means painting brings peace.
The painting is float mounted and framed in un-waxed Ash. D links hold picture wire for hanging.
