Catalogue Note

"Calligraphy exemplifies what I feel is the semi-abstract nature of Chinese art.  The form of every character exists, and therefore the calligrapher cannot make a new image; the characters have existed for thousands of years.  What calligraphers can do is express themselves through individual brush stroeks. This is abstract" 
- (Michael Knight and Li Huayi, The Monumental Landscapes of Li Huayi, San Francisco: Asia Art Museum, 2004)
