Description: This is a talk and demonstration on the Traditional Chinese Painting style of “Seih-Yi”. Seih means Write, and Yi means Mind. So we can translate Seih-Yi as mind writing, or directly writing down the mind. The paintings reveal the painters personality, and the level of their mind. So personal development is as important as the painting. By recognizing and letting go of all ego-self, the universal true-self will reveal. Within the painting process the artist is balancing Yin and Yang, achieving the union of Heaven and Human, learning from Nature, and realizing the Source of Heart (the Essence of Mind) within. Therefore, the paintings show this healing journey of the artist. Furthermore, when people view the art, they also receive the Healing Qi from the paintings which can benefit their health.
This is the final talk in the series What Lies Beneath? a sereis of contextual events curated by Rae Story on behalf of Pool Arts
What Lies Beneath the surface image we project; how do artists
explore the workings of the mind? What function does art play in
understanding our emotional or political lives if any? How does art
reflect and act in the face of the pressures on the human from
environment and society?
Historic, contemporary and local perspectives…..This series of talks complements our year long project, which includes an exhibition of work by Pool Arts at Nexus Cafe running until 18th September
