This energetic work of fine art by accomplished artist Diane Williams was created with mixed media on a natural-wood cradled panel. Dancing Brush is part of her Gesturing the Void series that exhibits bold, confident strokes similar to those perfected by the Chinese masters. Williams adds more about her inspiration for this piece:

“My love for Chinese calligraphy goes back to college when one of my professors loaned me a book called ‘The Dancing Brush.’ Until I read this book, I believed calligraphy was merely an alphabet. I learned that it is the art of drawing energy from the earth’s fiery core, through ones feet then the body and out the arms. This is how an artist makes authentic marks that have feeling and spirit.”

With 1.5” deep natural wood edges, Dancing Brush is wired and ready to hang. It also works nicely grouped with other works in the series, including Dancing the Ancestors, Folding Paper, Spring Thaw, Golden Lotus, Jumping over the Broom and Navigating Still Water. Alone or in a group, Dancing Brush will make a powerful yet elegant statement.
