Expressive Calligraphy: Dance Themes
Calligraphic Improvisations on a theme: dance
Expressive calligraphy puts motion and emotion first. The process is usually pretty wild, ink flying everywhere, papers on the floor, brushes and pens chosen sometimes at random for surprising effect. I have been a dancer for years, and have always loved the connection between calligraphy and its sister artform. A year of tango and many more of salsa, waltz and old fashioned swing were my very best lessons in the art of calligraphy.
