CALLIGRAPHER - RED SQUARE
Traditional & Contemporary
Red Square's Calligraphy work has received many high regards, has been called “One of A Kind, Avant-garde Art” in the truest sense of the word, that is, leading Chinese Art in American. Her work has been exhibited in different cities across United States. World Famous Art Dealer and the Founder of PACE Gallery, Arne Glimcher was the curator for her first soho exhibition in New York City.
What makes Red Square’s work so distinguished is that she creates and express a style of calligraphy all her own, with free spirit, the Running River Style.
She offers a sincere contemporary vision into the traditional arts by using the modern day liberation of free association and diversification of mediums to attain her Unique style.
She uses painting techniques to bring about depth, light and shadow, within each character and composition there is calligraphy in painting, there is painting in calligraphy.
In Red Square’s spiritual practice and revelation of Calligraphy, she sees Calligraphy is not only dance’s revelation and exaltation of self on paper, but that
Calligraphy is Life. Life is Calligraphy.
As a Tea Master, Tea Ceremony is the movement of her Calligraphy without ink in the Tea Room, as a Student of Life, everything around her in her daily life is her Calligraphy Master.
Every character Red Square writes is a revelation of a point of view, it is the transparency of meaning beyond what it is.
My whole body is my brush, when I paint it is not just words that come out through the calligraphy, it is the meaning of my existence. It is the way my whole being understands and sees the world.
When I write the words, what I seek and revealing is the transparency of meaning.
The way the single word can give variety of interpretation through the gestural understanding of my internal mood.
I am the Brush and the brush is Me.
The Ink is my Spirit that flows out of me every Instant.
The Paper is the filed of my Life.
When the work is done, it is only imprint of what has been. Fleeting after taste it is what left behind. It becomes a memory, a collection.
