P'o Mo translates from the Chinese as 'poured or splashed ink' - a technique developed by Tang Dynasty artists in 7th, 8th and 9th century China. Modern Chinese painters sometimes dip a sheet of rice paper into a shallow trough containing water and ink. Others may put colors on a dish and then tip the dish over on rice paper. They then create a landscape incorporating the ink marks. This collection is painted on Japanese shikishi boards.
