DESCRIPTION

New Jersey native, Buel Ecker is an award-winning, exhibiting artist with twenty years of artistic creating and is best know for works done in back and white. These works have been shown and collected locally, nationally and internationally, They include large, bold pieces done with brush and ink, small gentle creations using the suminagashi method and assembages. Her style is simple and direct often referencing nature and change.

100 Miles was created with a process called suminagashi. This is an ancient art form of floating ink on water and lifting the image directly from the floating ink. This method leaves little room for control but lots of room for imagination and spontaneity.
