Noir Flower 1
"Calligraphy is sheer life experienced through energy in motion that is registered as traces on silk or paper, with time and rhythm in shifting space its main ingredients." - Stanley Baker
The Noir Flower series is painted using Chinese watercolor and calligraphy techniques, with a focus on preserving the negative space on the page, rather than filling every part of the canvas. It is in this empty space, or resting place, through which the viewers are invited to enter the work itself.
From the age of 6 to 12, I learned Chinese calligraphy as part of Taiwan’s educational curriculum. Calligraphy is taught in school to calm the mind through concentrating on a singular moment when the motion of brush strokes begin.
Only when our mind arrives at a place of stillness will our eyes be able to see the strokes and lines that form an image. Only when our eyes rest upon the empty space, will our mind be able to take a great leap deeper into the image and decipher its meaning.
