Sumi ink on paper | 2022
In her series Beyond Black, Alarah Gee further explores her practice of traditional Japanese sumi-e (ink) painting, working with the sensation, shape, and depth that arises from the application of pure black pigment. Grounded in Gee’s relationship with geometric forms, the linear and curvilinear formations across the series are created with solid lines and overlapping strokes, and built with precision. At first, they read as the simplified geometric shapes at the very heart of her practice. Yet upon study, the true value and endless depth of these pure black brush strokes are found within.
