The nine artists in two-part show The Voice of the Brush uniquely revitalise classical calligraphy, spanning the gamut of modern calligraphic movements. Part 1 features pieces that play with the shapes and forms of characters to reinforce their meanings, sometimes blending multiple characters or separating them into component parts, with a largely pictographic result. In part 2, most of the artists remove the characters from their textual context and treat them as artistic images in themselves, employing them as means for expressing individualism and contemporary ideas.
