Chinese calligraphy is the art or method of writing Han characters, using a bamboo brush, ink and a mulberry paper. It is part of the cultural traditions of China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam where Calligraphy masters are considered as artists.
According to Stanley-Baker, "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."
The shape, size and type of hair in the brush, the color and density of the ink, as well as the texture of the paper are the main physical parameters influencing the final result. The calligrapher chooses the quantity of ink/water he lets the brush take up, chooses the pressure, inclination, and direction he gives to the brush, producing thinner or bolder strokes. Finally the ‘stroke order’ and speed gives the "spirit" to the characters and its artistic merit..
Jyoti Naoki Eri is a Japanese artist living in Auroville. He has practiced calligraphy for over two decades. Recently he participated in two International calligraphy exhibitions in Delhi. He feels that the ”Art of Writing is not only meant for the beauty of the appearance, it is the path leading me towards the clearer perception about the life which is full of mysteries and unclarity.
The darkness of ink invites me to the vastness in the womb of the universe. The untouched paper is her virgin memoir. Then brush bridges our breath; Hers and mine, and Two become One. There is no separation, it is timeless, no space for thoughts and questions. Calligraphy is our secret rendezvous”.
In this workshop Jyoti wishes to convey the profound beauty of Far Eastern calligraphic art. http://jyotinaokieri.wordpress.com
