organizing the chaos

“painted calligraphy” is about writing ancient Chinese texts, mostly poems, over and over again. It is done according to traditional principles of Chinese calligraphy.

The many overlays can all too easily create chaos. One of the tasks now is to defuse or organize this chaos in advance. In the end, an orderly structure should be created and a meditative quality should be achieved despite the many overlays. With concentration and discipline in execution, one can succeed.
