Dance Calligraphies

In the early 80's looking to create my own language incorporating elements of the brushwork and concepts of Chinese calligraphy. I developed ink on Hsuan paper "Dance Calligraphies" from my observations of dancer's movements at several of the leading modern dance companies including Merce Cunningham and Bill T.Jones/Arnie Zane. The Joyce Theater in New York City commissioned a series of twelve "Dance Calligraphies" in 1991. In there works I sought a calligraphic line to express the sensuality of the human figure in motion.
