Followed by Q&A with Dr. Britta Erickson (Producer and Director)
Presented by the Ink Society in collaboration with Duddell's
The "Enduring Passion for Ink" consists of ten short films. They introduce the work of ten ink artists, and address their artistic choices: Why ink? How is the artistic expression of ink distinct from that of other media? How does the artist approach tradition, innovation, and personal expression? Each film features the artist addressing these questions and shows him or her at work in the studio in the process of creating a work of art. Through time-lapsed photography, the film also shows that same painting’s evolution from start to finish.
Thanks to all for coming. We had a full house for the screening, followed by a lively Q&A with Dr. Britta Erickson. Stay tuned for details of Part II of the screening.
