With some of Sandilands most recent work there is a clear reference to the four years he spent in Kyoto, Japan studying brush calligraphy with a master.
"I am revisiting the integrity and simplicity of composition of black ink against white, perhaps with a punchy red name seal to complete the work. There is an undeniable truth to this ‘art of the moment’, where the brushmarks stand out naked against the paper: there is no hiding behind overlaying of pigments when what remains on the canvas is a perfect reflection of the mind."
