Paintings are accompanied by the author's poems. Translated into English by Andrey Kneller

Painting on Xuan paper, 68 x 60 cm, 2002. Sold




A lotus, swaying in the zephyr,

       Created calligraphic signs,

How beautiful was every letter

       Penned in poetic, lengthy lines!


It bended slightly, reemerging

       As beauty, purity and love

And silent hymns had started surging

       As lotus grew, and reached above.
