      work of Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama, who uses inks, paints and high-speed photography to capture the collision of colour and time.

      Shinichi Maruyama has established a name for himself by capturing paint in it's "live" essence. The artist paints by tossing the ink and water in in various patterns, where they are then captured by the camera lens. What we are left with is a beautiful moment where paint and time collide.

      Shinichi Maruyama * In Shinchi Maruyama’s photographs, handfuls of water tossed into the air become flowerbeds or perfect cylinders. An amalgam of sculpture, performance, and photography, Mauyama’s work reveals how much beauty can occur in the blink of an eye

      In a tribute to the beauty and unpredictability of the art of ink painting, New York based Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama developed KUSHO, a series of photographs of momentary collisions between ink and water in mid-air named for a Japanese term for “writing in the sky.” This series freezes the microsecond in which the two liquids approach and intersect with each other. The images produced are documentary and scientific, as well as beautiful abstract compositions in black, white, and gray.
