"Through the flowing pools of intangible shapes in the ink, I like to find the ephemeral and mystical moments found similarly in wilderness, where we encounter animals or breath-taking sceneries. I see the fragility of the world through these many short glimpses of interactions. Through a process called “suminagashi” I layer ink in different tones and then go in to add intricate details with a small brush using acrylic, gouache, and mineral pigments." -- Miki Saito
