Natural Occurring Realm
At the invitation of the Jeon-Buk Calligraphy Biennale in South Korea, held 5th November – 5th December 2021
This fresh new piece called ‘Natural Occurring Realm’ has been especially created for their international exhibition based on the theme of ‘nature’
The main free brushed cursive calligraphy in golden-black ink translates as ‘self-arising’ – set within golden glowing orb, the letters resemble an embryo, which poised like the sun – above a solid foundation of a five coloured word meaning materialising force or realm. This foundational word also represents the five elements in their five corresponding colours –
Yellow – Earth
Blue – Water
Red – Fire
Green – Wind
White – Space
– from which all composite things are based.
The strap line of small calligraphy at the bottom of the piece gives the title of the artwork in Uchen as well as in Umé script translating as ‘the expanse of absolute reality – Dharmadhatu.
