Binnie

Paul Binnie

Scottish, b. 1967

Steam
(Yuge)

with pink mica on the water, signed in gold kanji at left, Bin-ni with artist's circular seal Binnie in silver, marked in sumi ink on the bottom margin, A/P, titled in kanji, Yuge, and signed Paul Binnie, 2007

dai oban tate-e 16 5/8 by 11 1/2 in., 42.1 by 29.2 cm

For each design in the Edo Ink (Edo zumi) series Binnie produced non-tattoo versions in smaller editions of only thirty impressions. The alternate palettes emphasize the nudes themselves, juxtaposing the exposed skin against rich red or pink grounds, and eliminating the ukiyo-e references found in the cartouches, signatures and pictogram seals. The female nudes sold out very quickly and are already scarce.
