4 subgroups are presented in this Calligraphy Catalog:
painted calligraphy, experimental calligraphy, gestural calligraphy and traditional calligraphy.
painted calligraphy – 彩绘书法
This painted calligraphy section presents works that are based on traditional Chinese calligraphy but have been painted. These can be oil paintings with Chinese characters, works with colored ink or works in which Chinese poems have been written over and over again until a skillful texture results.
experimental calligraphy – 实验书法
Works from the experimental calligraphy series are based on traditional concepts from Chinese calligraphy, painting, and seal carving. There are also aspects from Western painting, especially color.
gestural calligraphy – 手势书法
Gestural calligraphy shows works that are essentially based on principles of traditional Chinese calligraphy, but the characters themselves do not make any sense. At first glance, they often look like they have been calligraphed, but it’s all about gestures or motoric writing.
traditional calligraphy – 传统书法
Traditional calligraphy shows works in traditional Chinese writing styles. In addition to own work, there are calligraphies based on the old masters of Chinese calligraphy.
