Weihe s pen strokes echo and reflect the brushstrokes of Bada Shanren s art which themselves are refractions of the variegated shades of black with which Shanren paints the natural world lustrous and salubrious sable elegant ebony resplendent with kaleidoscope shades of darkness smudges of black ink which echo the myriad of stars in the night sky or the violet vibrations of a gold fish in sunlight dappled water which represent the night as it would be if it was swimming through water Black and white is often seen as such a monochrome way of presenting the world yet as Shanren s master teaches him black itself is replete with innumerable shades and coloursBada Shanren s art was abstract hundreds of years the concept was popularized in the West and imbued with symbolism As his master taught him it is not the image which i is important but what the images represents to the artist art should be nothing less than the representation of the artist s soul on paper and for Shanren this was a mixture of wistfulness and wonder with a world which he was wearied by yet loathe to leaveHow can it be that from this dismal sky this bitter world can suddenly show us that we love it in spite of everything and in spite of everything it will be hard to take our leave of itAnd so Shanren s artistic vocation is to capture the inner essence of the world the ephemeral echoes of beauty which his eye beholds and which he attempts to recreate via the broad strokes of his paint brush So Shanren like all great artists was able to depict the world as it had never been seen before his attempts at depicting the movement of water is transformed into a catfish two spiders whose invisible web weaving means they are doomed to forever be apart the distillation of light through an open door as the moon gently rises Shanren s art represents nothing less than the joyful exuberance which he feels about life about the world and for Shanren the innumerable moments of beauty which make up his days One evening he went into the pine forest alone The mountain peaks were glowing in the evening light It appeared as if a giant had carved them with a huge knife The flat rocks looked so clean as if they had been washed The stream snaked its way upwardsending in a mere silver threadthe light and pines and stream were there for him alone and in his happiness Xuege forgot his exhaustion and sorrow and his heart became as light as a feather

In this small book Sea Of Ink Richard Weihe portrays the painter and calligrapher Bada Shanren a prince of the Chinese Ming Dynasty in the 17th century As a series of sketches in black ink and in brief chapters Weihe outlines the steps in the life of a man who was a prince with a promised bright future a fugitive a Buddhist monk and founder of a monastery a vagabond and considered mad A man who takes during his lifetime many different names in a long spiritual uest materialized by his ink drawingsAt the end of the Ming dynasty overthrown by the Manchus and several upheavals it tells the life of Prince Zhu Da who sees the world crumbling around him Zhu Da strips himself of his imperial insignia responsibilites and duties and seeks the path to wisdom and the ultimate brushstroke aided by an old master of the great ink A biographical narrative and a manual in Zen philosophy all at once this small novella is written in a fair accurate streamlined and poetical language The chapters are short and precise A narrative full of often puzzling philosophical sentences about life and painting Through the ink paintings the reader perceives the transcendence of art that reveals the colors of the world by using only shades of black and grayIt reads so exciting that one gets the feeling of seeing the artist himself at work and the images appear as unexpected revelations to our hero This is insofar very accessible by reproductions of eleven brush paintings made in China in the late 17th century which illustrate perfectly the descriptions of the painters work and his mind Each time the brush strokes are explained It is a back and forth between those illustrations and the written word which makes it exciting and rewarding Richard Weihe manages to erase the boundaries between the genres showing that art and writing is in a relationship to the outside and the inner world of every oneThe author makes one dive into a biography which is in the spirit of his paintings There is an openness to the world in which the artist is gathering around his meager fire images of his surroundings to relate to men In this uest for the right gesture for the painter and the right word for the writer their responses are available to us Or rather fragments of answers that are milestones towards an understanding of the world With paintings of a fish a flower a rock a landscape the artist delivers a message of simplicity
