Disciplined Spontaneity

Disciplined! ...yet fluid and spontaneous, improvised at the moment of writing the frame of mind of the artist is a disciplined spontaneity.

Rhythm, Momentum and Mental Expression

The magic of calligraphy is that it transforms your soul! To do this you must train yourself to become attuned to the artwork. You tune yourself into the artwork by observing with a quiet and calm mind. Your mind and heart will match the rhythm, momentum and mental expression of the artist. This is what makes Chinese brushwork such a valuable art form in Asia. The ability of an artist to create artwork that transforms and transports the soul and spirit of the tranquil heart!

Zen of calligraphy

Rhythm, momentum and mental expression is what calligraphy requires of the artist. When the viewer appreciates a masterpiece of calligraphy the viewer puts themselves on the same wavelength as the artist. The viewer simply observes with an empty and tranquil mind. This is the Zen of calligraphy.
