George Miyasaki’s contemplative Ripple prints invite the viewer into a deep, hypnotic viewing experience, as the artist abstracts the silent silent and startling effect of a ripple across still water. Each work in the Ripple series begins with a nearly imperceptible center—a relatively faint sliver of light—which expands in concentric, elliptic outlines radiating from it. Miyasaki’s subtle play with scale, and slow, incremental gradation in form and color—ranging from lavender to red—comes together in quiet, powerful compositions that seem to vibrate off the sheet of paper. As typical for Miyasaki, he explored the electric tension of the Ripple imagery in both painting and prints, taking full advantage of the strengths of each medium, and applying his exceptional eye for subtlety in different, and innovative ways. Each print in this series was made in small editions. At once geometric and voluptuous, the Ripple series are an ode to unexpected beauty.
