About The Artwork

“Poem from Heaven” is a captivating painting that weaves an idea cherished by the artist over decades, continually reinterpreted. In this piece, elements evocative of Chinese characters gently descend from the sky, coalescing into a poetic form. The use of Western ink and Indian ink on yupo paper adds depth and texture to this celestial creation. Ready to hang! The picture comes matted and in a good quality, modern, attractive frame made of black aluminum and plexiglass. [Please note that the original is not very large, and the situational images are just examples of how prints of the work could be effectively displayed.]
