Are you familiar with the Gutai movement? There is some great work that came out of Japan at this time. One of the founders, Jiro Yoshihara, sent their manifesto to Jackson Pollack. I've been loosely thinking about Yoshihara's work for my cards.

Other gutai members were Atsuko Tanaka, who made this electric dress (that she wore and could have electrocuted herself!) And you might like the work of Shozo Shimamoto throwing paint (although it is almost more performance than final artifact - very interesting on youtube)

Yes indeed

Yes--the hard labels aren't important. It is inspired works from another genre. I don't get disappointed in my swaps. The returns are awesome.

And yes, BluSkyHare--I also agree that wine can usually help.

Great colors and texture. Can't wait to see them in person.
I am so lucky that I get to see the art of ALL players.
