9780939117635: Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy
Présentation de l'éditeur :

What defines a masterwork? Out of Character, a collaborative effort from leading Chinese and U.S. scholars, focuses on fifteen calligraphic masterpieces. Supporting these masterworks are an additional twenty-five works of the highest quality. The book explores the roles of tradition, creativity, and self-expression in the art of Chinese calligraphy. Calligraphy has been admired as the ultimate art form by China s educated elite for more than 2,000 years. Over that time a complex set of rules and conventions has evolved that impacts every aspect of the calligrapher s practice. The authors' demonstrate that, within the constraints of their artistic tradition, creativity and self-expression have remained of primary importance to the Chinese calligrapher. By manipulating a brush with varied movements and pressures calligraphers create sensuous strokes. Their ink dances through dots and lines to present balance within a character, harmony between characters, and rhythm among lines on the surfaces of silk, satin, and paper. With mind and hand in accord, Chinese calligraphers express the strength of their character in the characters they write.
