Nocino Stained Painting, quadtych
Home-made Nocino spilled out onto hand-made washi paper
Each of the four pieces measure approximately 7"h x 5"w and are shown as a quadtych, as one piece.
The hand-made washi papers are stained with a home-made Nocino made with foraged black walnuts.
Nocino is a liquor made of unripe black walnuts infused in a liquor, in this case vodka. Cinnamon sticks, lemon peels, nutmeg and other ingredients can be added to the infusion and it is aged for several months to a year.
This hand-made washi paper is a beautiful blend of mulberry, pulp and sizing, featuring torn edges, a feather light weight, with exceptional strength and soft feel.
These are original paintings, only one quadtych is available, and it is dated and signed by the artist.
