Work on Rice Paper – Traditional

In Red Square – Guitian Li De Osu’s belief and practice, every movement is an unseen stroke of calligraphy. Each stroke is the illustrious trace of the existence of Breath and Energy. Her calligraphy practice began in the rice fields and tea gardens on her parents’ land when she 8 years old in Changsha, Hunan, China. Red Square recognized the connection of calligraphy to all movements in life, but in dance particularly. Calligraphy is dance with ink on paper; dance is calligraphy with body in space. To be fully able to dance on the paper with a free spirit, Red Square used her body as a brush to train in dance for three years before she wrote a single, true calligraphy character. What makes Calligrapher Red Square’s work so unique is the presentation of calligraphy in three dimensions. Using painting techniques to bring about depth, light and shadow, within each character and composition there is calligraphy in calligraphy, there is painting in painting. Red Square’s work stands away from tradition yet is bound tight by it because she respects the knowledge that has been practiced for thousands of years while freeing herself from the constraint of it at the same time. Her calligraphy has received many high regards and has been called “Avant-Garde Calligraphy” by one of the most longstanding and successful art dealers and gallery owners, ARNE GLIMCHER, Founder of Pace Gallery, curated Red Square – Guitian De Osu’s first solo calligraphy exhibition in Soho, New York City. Her work is the combination of new and old, classical and contemporary, her talent and the deep understanding of the relation between life and calligraphy comes from the philosophy of Neoillusion. “In Neoillusion, there is no meaning, but the meaning. Red Square says “Art is my Religion, everything around is my Prayer. My work is to deliver the meaning of doing, and unveil the face of Unity.
