Japanese Lanterns, 2018
Artist: Barbara Rizza Mellin
About the Artwork: The simplicity of this minimalist composition is both soothing and dramatic. Three deep-orange, paper-like fruit hang from a gracefully arched branch. The negative space (white area around the image) adds to the subtle elegance of the work. The art is signed and artist’s chop is stamped in the lower left.
Media: Sumi ink & Chinese watercolor on handmade Nujabi paper
Dimensions: 24” wide by 36” tall
