My experience in Shodo

Post  Andrea 61 on Sat Apr 28, 2012 12:03 pm

As mentioned in my presentation a few years with a large practice Shodo Japanese master Norio Nagayama who lives in Italy, that a master Japanese National Commission after one of his shows he judged "calligrapher no longer be judged" the highest attainable level.
Some notion, the "Shodo" literally means Scripture (Sho) and Via (C) The way of writing.
Nagayama describes in his book so Shodo:
"The shodo is a discipline which is grown themselves.
It creates a picture by means of writing, and it is precisely the abstract nature of this medium allows almost unconsciously express their thoughts, their emotions, their spirit and, ultimately, themselves. The shodo is an image of ourselves.
Therefore, to produce a work of shodo must cultivate themselves.
The shodo is useful for cultivating intuition even the slightest movement, so the great masters of martial arts practiced constantly the shodo.
"
I just passed the third examination (III Kyu) which was to write on the rice paper 4 Kanji Kaisho style, the next question I always do instead of a sheet with 4 4 kanji kanji in Kaisho style Gyosho I write, always a sheet of rice paper, the first 12 characters dell'Hannya Shingyo.
I'm still at the beginning of a long process, as claimed by Norio, in addition to expressing the inner strength, ki, is also a training staff.
Here I suggest some of my handwriting:

last exam


part of the next examination


Kumo = Nuvola


Ryu Dragon (Kaisho style)


Ryu = Dragon (Sosho style)


Yama = Mountain


Ichi go ichi e = Live every moment intensely (Zen Buddhist phrase) (before assembly to Kakejiku)


Kakejiku
