Refection of the Reeds on a Lake, 2023
Ink on Xuan (rice) paper mounted on silk
125 x 81 cm
UniqueFramed in museum quality hand stained frame with non reflective, UV filtered Art Glass
Throughout this year Mila Morton has been working on 12 incredible paintings on Xuan paper. Blue ink dominates this series, a vibrant hue evoking the fresh air of springtime. In this new approach to the spring reeds motif which has become a staple of her practice, Mila Morton presents in a mix of visual languages. The pieces span from light and fluid harmonies to sharp and powerful brushwork on a large scale, maintaining the tranquil compositions that characterise Morton's work.
This piece from Mila Morton’s new series features an extraordinary dash of pinkish-red colour. The contrasting colours interact with each other, bringing our attention to the borders of the piece where the ink fades out of the picture plane.
Applied carefully onto Xuan paper, ink washes play on the surface, flowing in and out of the frame. Like water droplets in a lake, Mila Morton’s brush marks are fluid - splotches within splotches that remind us of the movement of water and its great depths. There is an overall sense of tranquility in these works, their soft shapes like rippling aquatic reflections.
