painted calligraphy red ink


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.

这个书法展区展示了以中国传统书法为基础但已经绘画的作品。 这些可以是带有汉字的油画,可以是彩色墨水作品,也可以是一遍又一遍地写下中国诗歌的作品,直到出现巧妙的质感。

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 of Western painting, especially color.

实验书法系列作品以中国书法、绘画和篆刻的传统观念为基础。 西方绘画也有一些方面,尤其是色彩。

gestural calligraphy blue, green and black ink


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.

手势书法显示的作品基本上是基于中国传统书法的原理,但字符本身没有任何意义。 乍一看,它们通常看起来像是书法作品,但这都是关于手势或动作书写的。

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.

传统书法展示了中国传统书写风格的作品。 除了自己的作品,还有以中国古代书法大师为基础的书法作品。
