TRACES FRAGILES… INDÉLÉBILES is the the 6th exhibition for the group, Les Calmars.
This calligraphy exhibition combines gestural marks, flowing ink, rhythm and movement as explored by the eight calligraphers of Les Calmars. Lorna Mulligan’s piece shown below, (part of a collective work) is done with brush and inks (sumi and J. Herbin) and represents an open book in which we see the dialogue between a page of text and a page of landscape imagery. The text says ‘Je suis le calm entre deux sons” (I am the rest between two notes) – Rilke.
