calligraphy by Tetsugen Doko
Tetsugen Doko: Ōbaku Zen calligraphy, two large characters in cursive style, 17th century; ink on paper; 12 x 18 in.; BAMPFA, promised gift of Stuart Katz.

Inspired by works of Zen calligraphy in Meditation in Motion, work from image to language and back again. Explore ways of drawing words to visually express their meaning and create fragments of poetry in response to works of art. Using drawing materials and translucent vellum, design a two-layer artwork that combines drawn text and image.

With artist Beth Krebs. Beth Krebs is an artist and educator with an MFA from Rutgers University. When not working on her own art projects, she can be found teaching school groups at the de Young Museum and adults at the San Francisco Art Institute.
