"Dragonfly" is a giclee reproduction of an original Sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting) by professional artist Brazen Edwards, using Epson Ultrachrome professional archival ink printed on Somerset Velvet, which has the look and feel of watercolour paper.

The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization with its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

The eyes of the dragonfly are one of the most amazing and awe inspiring sights. Given that almost 80% of the insect’s brain power is dedicated to its sight and the fact that it can see 360 degrees, it symbolizes the ability to see beyond the mundane into the vastness that is really our Universe, and our own minds, to see beyond the limitations of the human self.

What is Sumi-e?

Sumi-e is a graceful, contemplative form of painting, enjoyable both to view and to create. It’s a style of painting that is characteristically Asian, as it has been practiced for well over a thousand years. Sumi-e may be regarded as the earliest form of expressionistic art that captures the unseen.

Sumi-e literally means “ink painting” and is an art form that strives to convey the qi (variously, 'chi') which is the essence or spirit of the subject, object or scene in the fewest possible strokes. Once a stroke is painted, it cannot be changed or erased. This makes ink and wash painting a technically demanding art-form requiring great skill, concentration, and years of training.
