open studios, ink and paint

This post is a mischmasch of links, can't find the red thread. Maybe some Asian connections? First: Stunning site by Japanese motion painting crew RinpaEshiden. This is no beginners' graffitti. Almost hypnotic; surprising, playful and so well produced. One clay piece: Terra Trance

Open Studios at
Konstepidemin this weekend:
Lena Rydén and Åke Nordström, Saturday and Sunday, 12 - 16.

Lena studied traditional Chinese ink painting and uses the techniques in her own motifs. She also gives studio workshops now and then, it's a whole process of painting and then mounting the thin, almost transparent rice paper sheets, layer by layer.

Sunday: Andreas Roth gives a monologue with
music by Krusakvaretten. Translated the title is "All I don't know about Mozart" at Söndagspaviljongen på Konstepidemin (click "aktuellt").

Elsa Agelii, painter and free embroidery artist, is blogging from India (in Swedish). She will study places where water is kept sacred and do embroidery together with desert women.

Have a joyful weekend!
