Details:Unique for its strong natural fibers and its painstaking production techniques, washi stands out as a nexus of tradition and innovation. Its continuing, and ever-evolving, importance as an artistic medium is due primarily to the ingenuity of Japanese contemporary artists, who have pushed washi beyond its historic uses to create highly textured two-dimensional works, expressive sculptures, and dramatic installations. 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 as well as ubiquitous. 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. Despite the increased mechanization of papermaking in Japan over the last century, contemporary Japanese artists have turned to this supple yet sturdy paper to express their artistic visions. The thirty-seven artworks and installations in Washi Transformed: New Expressions in Japanese Paper epitomize the potential of this traditional medium in the hands of these innovative artists, who have made washi their own.
