Su Shi's Poem in Combined Regular, Running and Cursive Scripts

Dr TanTsze Chor’s early education in China laid the foundation for his knowledge of Chinese poetry and calligraphy. He boldly broke away from tradition by using coloured ink and adopting several different scripts within a single piece of work. His writing has a strong sense of ornamentation due to their colours, combination of scripts and sometimes the use of patterned paper or silk. Here, Dr Tan transforms this poem by the famous Northern Song scholar, Su Shi (1037-1101) in a creative outburst tempered by a sense of restraint.
