Collages

Inspired by Qu Leilei and Bapo, I enjoy making collages with calligraphy.

The inscription is the opening lines of a famous poem about the Yangzi by Zhang Ruoxu (Tang):  The surge of the Spring river joins the level sea.  The bright moon above shares their tide.  Brightness gleams on the waves for a thousand miles. Where is the river without moonlight ?

Music inspired by the poem.

Here are a couple of early ones, made for my Tai Chi master of Long Fei (Dragon Flying) school.  The smaller phrases are the names of tai chi moves.
