Fung Ming Chip is a playwright, poet, seal carver and artist most widely recognized for his devotion to exploring the visual potential for shu-fa, calligraphic writing, over the past three decades. After moving to New York in 1977 and later to Taiwan in 1986, he settled in Hong Kong where he has established over one hundred different writing script styles to date. He composed Interlude in Time in the 1980s and he continues to interchange the text with various scripts in different compositions. In the late 1990s he used shapes found in classical gardens, such as the early example of a double gourd form in Long Sky Above Autumn Water - White Script (Lot 526).
