Chinese ink painting is one of the oldest continually practiced art forms in the world. It first appeared in China in the fifth century, and soon traveled to Korea and then to Japan. As old and deeply rooted in East Asian aesthetics and meditation as it is, ink painting is credited with influencing the development of Western modern art. Its minimalist approach to painting continues to have enormous appeal. Artist and teacher Sungsook Setton, who learned the techniques with Chinese and Korean masters in her native South Korea, brings new excitement to this age-old art. While teaching the traditional disciplines for holding and using the brush, she shows students how to turn the techniques and inner meditation toward interpreting their own world: city views, music, and the essence of contemporary life.

This is an art book: oil paintings with accompanying scripture verses presented as a 365 daily devotional.The Spirit and the Brush is a collection of 124 paintings, along with several drawings, created over the past decade. They are arranged to guide the reader through a year of contemplation that echoes nature's life cycles: Spring's revival, birth, and joy; Summer's celebration and whimsy; Autumn's color, abundance, and bounty; and Winter's sleepy embrace encouraging rest and solace in the stark and beautiful landscape.Each image pairs with three scriptures (one per calendar day, leap year excluded). Guided by my daily contemplations and prayers, the scriptures are determined once a piece is completed. The selected passages embody the emotional and thematic direction of the work with the intention of bringing a deeper meaning of context and contemplation to the visual experience. Selected works meet three criteria: an intimate connection with a place I've been and an experience I had; an aesthetic level that I am at peace with; and a strong emotional context. Landscapes are interspersed with still lifes-often created during the cold of winter-that have a direct correlation to the bounty of the scene. I encourage you to find a quiet place of respite each day and ponder the images, consider the passages, and find your own connection to God's Word and His creations.Whether artist, lover of art, lover of the landscape, person of prayer or curious seeker, I hope you find peace and love when opening the book. I pray my efforts humbly point to God.... with Humility comes Wisdom.Proverbs 11:2

Sword and Brush

Sword and Brush

The accompanying text amplifies our understanding of the term, what it meant to Japanese warriors, and what it means to practitioners of calligraphy and the martial arts today.

This moment of perfect clarity that is the force behind all the traditional Japanese arts—from archery to flower arranging—is celebrated here in Dave Lowry's exploration of the common principles shared by calligraphy and the martial arts. Forty-two examples of Lowry's calligraphy, accompanied by his essays, show how the way of the brush reflects the strategic principles of the way of the sword. Each calligraphy represents a term from the martial arts—such as do, the way, or wa, harmony. The accompanying text amplifies our understanding of the term, what it meant to Japanese warriors, and what it means to practitioners of calligraphy and the martial arts today. What becomes clear is that these two seemingly unrelated disciplines actually partake of the same profound elemental spirit.

"The story in this book begins with the first letter in the year Eliza Champlain was born, 1797, in New London. It unfolds through her own, her mother's, and her aunt's correspondence - hundreds of letters now first published with explanatory chapters, commentary, and notes around them. Her aunt, at first in their home town and then (from 1811) for eight years in New York, was the first professional artist of her sex in the United States - Mary Way, a painter of miniature portraits. Eliza's mother, remaining at home, also earned her living by her brush. The two older women taught all they knew to Eliza, sometimes looking over her shoulder, sometimes in their letters. To show how artists went about their work in the period, nothing matches this collection." "Paintings by all three can be found in various private collections and galleries, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The book through its color plates introduces an equal number of paintings hitherto unknown which were preserved with the letters." "The core of the book, however, is the world of women - their circles and relationships, their concerns, and the opportunities open to them in the early Republic."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
