Liu Guo Song: Mysterious Horizons

Liu Guo Song (劉國松) The Father of Contemporary Ink Wash, was born in 1932, Bangbu, Anhui Province, China. In 1949, he moved to Taiwan. Graduating in 1956 from the National Taiwan Normal University he established, in that same year the “Fifth Moon Group” with fellow avant-garde artists. From this platform he launched his modern art campaign in Taiwan. His battle cries “Down with the Brush!” & later “Make Painting Unconventional!” were the most radical movements in 20th century Chinese art that profoundly disturbed the powerful conservative art establishment. His call encouraged them to discover new methods of modern expression using traditional materials but not traditional brushwork. It encouraged innovations & a new incarnation of Chinese art.

What an extraordinary way to kick off not just any weekend, but San Francisco Pride weekend. We’re lucky to be neighbors with City Hall so we can soak up these amazing glorious vibes. #LoveWins

We’re gonna post later today about our Pride plans for the weekend, but let’s just relish this moment for now

Buddhist votive stele. Chinese, 550-75 AD (Northern Qi dynasty), made of grey limestone. 

Buddhists in China adopted the traditional Chinese practice of using rectangular stone slabs for commemorative purposes. Such stones were erected by donors at sites important to the Buddhist church, particularly temples. This stele includes a narrative scene in its main zone. The story is of the Buddha in a previous incarnation, as a king. In order to test the king’s piety, an ascetic demanded his head. The king acquiesced but, afraid that he would show fear, he tied his hair to a tree to steady himself; this act is depicted on the stele. In most versions of the story, the life of the king is spared, his selflessness proven. 

Above the narrative scene is the Buddha of the Future, Maitreya, seated with legs hanging downward; below is the historical Buddha Sakyamuni, who preaches while seated with legs crossed. The other side of the stele shows a debate between Manjusri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, and Vimalakirti, a layman. That a layman could debate a bodhisattva appealed to educated Chinese, and this story was thus frequently represented as a means of propagating the faith. (Yale)
