This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Roland Flexner derives inspiration from the Japanese calligraphic tradition to create intricately detailed ink drawings that emerge via his breath. Gravity and chance play primary roles in generating his unique imagery, which balances on the periphery between abstraction and psychedelia. The works presented here hail from a series called “Bubble Drawings” that Flexner began in 1996. They are the result of the artist blowing a mixture of soapy water and sumi ink through a straw or hollowed-out stencil brush onto intimately sized pieces of paper. Flexner has described these works as “a total surprise.”
