Silent Bamboo | Japanese Brush Painting
A Japanese ink brush painting (known as sumi-e, suiboku or suibokuga) of the Bamboo, which is one of the Four Gentlemen. It is a noble plant due to its strength and flexibility.
Suiboku is a meditative technique and hence the picture includes the quote ‘From Silence Answers Flow’.
A comparative technique known as Chinese brush painting yields similar results, which is emphasised by the Chinese characters for ‘Silence’ and ‘Solution’ It reminds us to seek the answers from within…
