Tao Fa brandishes his brush in a flowing manner pregnant with freedom, visibly spirited. Space, time, mountains, water, clouds, birds, people, ghosts and gods are all connected and all have expressions.
Tao Fa’s conjures up realms with paint and ink. I want to strike my harp and explore those realms with tunes, I want to search for the place where the tangible and intangible collides and becomes one.
I also have the pleasure to present Tao Fa’s friend Qian Li. His guqin and my guzheng are separate, but through improvisation we will make them sing together. We will also interact with Tao Fa, and with a bit of luck, we will unite our three different “Tools of Expression” to a greater whole, in which we can catch glimps of the enigmas nature and life itself.
After the performance we invite you to a cup of tea, to enjoy Tao Fa’s paintings and to talk with us about art, life and whatever you feel like.
