Calligraphy In Blossom: With Marina Soria
“If we start from letters, the result will be pretty much the same, but if we move to a much broader shape resource in nature, then the result will be a whole set of new possibilities. We will try to find the similarities between letterforms and the shapes we may find in nature. We will research into the Taoist principles of beauty to broaden our graphic and design solutions. The Japanese brush and the Cola pen will be our tools, first working with walnut ink and then moving on to color rendering. The final form will be a book in which natural reverberations will have priority over legibility. The playful aspect of painting will open our minds and the joy in the execution will show through our strokes.”
This workshop is held in Salem, OR. For more information, view Marina Soria.
