Binnie

Paul Binnie

Scottish, b. 1967

Shower

pink baren sujizuri ground and mica water streaming down the figure's back, signed with gold pigment at left, Bin-ni, with artist's circular seal Binnie, numbered, titled and signed in pencil on the bottom margin, 10/30, Shower, Paul Binnie, ca. February - May 2006

oban tate-e 16 5/8 by 12 1/4 in., 42.2 by 31.1 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 use of mica to represent the falling water is particularly effective.
