INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED & MULTI-AWARD WINNING

CHINESE CALLIGRAPHER SONG WENJING

TO PRESENT “ART OF HEART” ART EXHIBITION

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN WASHINGTON, DC, AREA:

UNIQUE CHINESE WATER PAINTINGS & CALLIGRAPHIES

WILL BE ON DISPLAY, FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC,

OCTOBER 21 – 23 AT RITZ CARLTON HOTEL/PENTAGON CITY

Washington, DC, September & October, 2016 – Internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning Chinese Artist and Calligrapher Song Wenjing will present his unique artworks for the first time ever in the Washington, D.C. area, from October 21-23, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Pentagon City. The exhibition, entitled “Art of Heart,” will present several of Song’s renowned Chinese Water Paintings and Calligraphies.

The “Art of Heart” exhibition is Free and Open to the Public. Song Wenjing, who will be in attendance during this three-day exhibition, will also make his artworks available for purchase. Please see: http://www.hurrahmarketing.com/productions/song-wenjing/

The concept behind Song Wenjing’s “Art of Heart” Exhibit is that while on the surface it appears that his paintings and calligraphies were completed by brush and ink, they are all actually works of his heart. “An artist does not live in a vacuum,” Song says notably. “He or she should also do something to serve the public – to help them appreciate your artworks and to gain some positive energy through them.”

Song’s specialty area of art – Calligraphy, which means “beautiful writing” – has been appreciated as an art form in many different cultures throughout the world. However, the stature of calligraphy in Chinese culture has been unmatched elsewhere in the world. For thousands of years, the Chinese have considered calligraphy not just a form of decorative art, but rather the supreme visual art form. The Chinese have long valued their calligraphy as more meaningful and valuable than painting and sculpture, and ranks alongside the poetry that calligraphy expresses as the ultimate means of self-expression and artistic cultivation.

ABOUT SONG WENJING’S LOVE OF ART:

Regarding his powerful love of art, Song says, “I have studied and practiced creative work in Chinese calligraphy and painting for more than 40 years. I have a deep love of the ancient arts and feel supremely proud to be able to contribute to Chinese culture—a culture imbued into the very blood of the Chinese people flowing through every vein. The older I get and the more experienced I become, the more fascinated I am with the depth, breadth and longevity of Chinese art.
When Chinese talk about ‘pen and ink’ in Chinese art forms, they are referring to a ‘spirit’ that goes from the artist’s soul to pen and finally to paper. It takes years of practice. Sometimes, a single line reflects a variety of elements—emotion, characters, favorability and hard work. Hence, ‘pen and ink’ are very important, but it all begins in the soul.
When Chinese talk about ‘artistic realm,’ it refers to the harmonization of content and form, blending together emotion and sceneries. The unique tools in Chinese writing and painting—brush, ink, rice paper and vermilion ink paste—are apt carriers of oriental beauty. One of the most well known artistic realms is Zen.
When Chinese talk about ‘virtue,’ it is a comprehensive spiritual state that each calligrapher pursues. Aside from calligraphy and painting, the artists should also study history, music, literature, and even philosophy. Only with a thorough knowledge of these fields can one finally achieve mastery of the virtues of his art.
Chinese calligraphy and painting respect tradition and emphasize the passing to our successors the essence of Chinese culture. After all, Chinese characters and paintings have endured 3,000 years. But while it is important to treasure and remember our history, as artists in the modern age, we need also need to keep our fingers on the pulse of our times and aim for innovation and breakthroughs.
In the past decade, I exhibited my works abroad every year or two. Each time, I try to build on the past, adopt something new, and share that in my art. Allowing exotic art philosophies to collide with my own is part of my humble effort to understand and mutually appreciate artistic expression from every corner of the world.
An ancient Chinese poem recalls a ‘bird singing on top of the branch, awaiting a response from a friend.’ My brush is my voice—it conveys my genuine wish to inspire your echoes.”
