What is chigiri-e?

I recently came across chigiri-e, the Japanese art form of collage with torn papers. It can be very traditional but there are also many artists exploring new and modern ways.

 

I am exploring, using different papers, mixing watercolours, making this technique mine.

That is chigiri-e, or any other technique. They are springboards to jump higher.

Récemment, j’ai découvert l‘art japonais du chigiri-e, un collage fait de papiers déchirés. C’est un art traditionel mais beaucoup d’artistes explorent de nouvelles manières plus contemporaines.

J’explore, utilisant différents papiers, ajoutant de l’aquarelle, m’appropriant cette technique.

Et c’est cela le chigiri-e, ou tout autre technique, un tremplin pour sauter plus haut.
