Isabelle Was Creating

Isabelle Baticle is an international student from France. In 1992, she entered the calligraphy class for international students in Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now China Academy of Art) and in1997, she graduated as a calligraphy major from the Department of Chinese Painting, China Academy of Art.

In 1999, she returned to France and engaged in painting and calligraphy teaching and exhibitions. She recalled her study in China, 'I clearly remember how I felt every day when I first learned calligraphy. I was very much attracted to the goat-hair brush that was difficult to control and the diffusion on the rice paper. '

'Later, I gradually understood the infinite world in Chinese calligraphy, and the more I learned, the more I felt small. When I started learning calligraphy, I was amazed in many aspects. For example, the structure of the characters seemed not complicated to write, but they turned out to be profound when I wrote the characters. What attracted me the most were the lines of calligraphy which gave me a lot of inspiration. In the bones, flesh, tendons, qi, blood, momentum, pause and transition, yin-yang relationship of the lines, and in the inner feeling they guide, lie a spiritual power which takes a lifetime to learn.'
