Early 1970s The Calligraphic Sketches of Poems


This set consists of 24 sketches. Huang Yao had progressed from single word to phrases and now to a group of words, from Tang poems, Buddhist poems and even classical literature. The first page for each 'poem' has the characters of the poem written in a column on the left-hand side of the page. Next to each of the Chinese character are different ancient ways of writing that character. The pages that follow are some possible combinations of the characters in the poem. As each Chinese poem usually has 4 sentences. They were arranged vertically, horizontally, in clutters or diagonally, which later became mixed and finally appears to be in free form. An example of a Zen poem, highlighting two methods of arranging the same sentence is illustrated below. Estimated date of work done is early 1970s.
