Monhegan Island, ‘79

Monhegan Island, ‘79

Out in the plein air, on vacation in Maine, Zeke made many drawings with a rapid, calligraphic  brush and wash. Sumi or carbon black ink with water on washi,  Japanese hand-made paper was his medium of choice for some of his most expressive drawings through the decades. These were some of the first papers friend Aiko Nakane brought to Chicago.  Many other aspects of culture come along with the paper and it’s use.  For Zeke, brushwork was a lifelong practice.
