Artist's notes: I am a calligrapher, but this work is a photograph I took with a calligraphic sensibility. Ink was dropped into a clear tank of water and allowed to move of its own accord. Natural, beautiful, and requiring no effort. This is an example of what I have called Reductionist Calligraphy, i.e., calligraphy reduced to the essential. In ancient time, transcription was an essential part of calligraphy, but now we have many more functional means to transcribe text... so I let the words go. Let's see if calligraphy can do without.
