Create an Abstract Dreamscape
In this activity, you will create an art piece inspired by the work of Bernice Bing.
Bernice Bing blurred the boundary between word and image in her art. In 1984, she spent three months in China studying calligraphy and traditional ink landscape painting. Her work following that formative trip evolved toward a synthesis of calligraphy and abstraction. In an artist statement from 1990, Bing mused, “[S]ince my return from a trip to China, I have made a path to my heart with Chinese calligraphy.”
