Art of Soul & Spirit
Art is the exploration of our soul. It can be a hard journey to discover our nature through art. Yet it also shows such wonders along the path of creation.
Taoist art is about exploring the joy of life. I am sure many definitions exist to what classical Taoist art is…
However: think about this from a Taoist view point for a second.
To a Taoist…
All art is Taoist when it explores our nature.
Traditionally, Taoist’s prefer to minimize the construction of their art, using flowing mediums, such as ink, to capture the moment. However, again no true rule exists. Some Taoist engravings or weaving can be overwhelmingly colorful and filled with the most complex weaves you could imagine.
The uncarved block represents the ultimate art form, since in potential, the uncarved block can be everything. However, Taoists are human loving to give in to emotions, whimsy and freedom to just let go. To let the art take the artist to the wildest heights.
