"When a friend appeared with a stack of rice paper, Schendel found both her medium and – in a sense – her message. Rice paper is there and not quite there, something on which you can paint but almost invisible in itself, a surface so diaphanous it is nearly transparent. Her Bordados(Embroideries) were made by laying rice paper on sheets of glass sprinkled with talc and ink and drawing on the paper with her fingernail. The effect is a Zen-like poetry of tiny marks – symbols, numbers and letters that nearly amount to words but stay just on this side of visual abstraction." -source is The Guardian
