Details:Washi, which translates to “Japanese paper,” has been integral to Japanese culture for over a thousand years, and the strength, translucency, and malleability of this one of-a-kind paper have made it extraordinarily versatile. Historically, washi has been used as a base for Japanese calligraphy, painting, and printmaking; but when oiled, lacquered, or otherwise altered, it has other fascinating applications in architecture, religious ritual, fashion, and art. The thirty-five artworks and installations in Washi Transformed show the potential of this traditional medium in the hands of innovative artists who have made washi their own. Using a range of techniques—layering, weaving, and dyeing to shredding, folding, and cutting—nine artists embrace the seemingly infinite possibilities of washi. Their extraordinary creations—abstract paper sculptures, lyrical folding screens, highly textured wall pieces, and other dramatic installations— demonstrate the resilience and versatility of washi as a medium, as well as the unique stature this ancient art form has earned in the realm of international contemporary art. The creativity of these visionaries deepens our understanding of how the past informs the present, and how it can build lasting cultural bridges out of something as seemingly simple and ephemeral as paper.
