Upcoming Talk:

Join Nan Rae as she gives a talk on the journey of discovering the ‘Gentlemen Scholars’ or ‘Literati’ of ancient China and their connection to the Abstract Expressionists of the West. We discover qualities in their character that led to the creation of some of the most profound artwork known to man. Understanding their “Living Ideas” brings clarity to the understanding of these paintings of ‘mind and spirit’ and how to connect to them emotionally.

Also discussed: 

  • The Importance of Ink 
  • Understanding Space 
  • Why copying Calligraphy 
  • Importance of Bamboo 
  • Symbolism Life as an art form 
  • Ni Tsan 
  • Silent Poetry Shan Shui… and so much more! 

You of the East 
and I of the West 
Have already met 
in the garden 
of our friendship 
where we share together
