No Color Boundaries

These three characters for “no color boundaries” 無色界 are rendered in the chancery script originally used to expedite writing by clerks in ancient China over 2000 years ago. Here, the script exhibits emphatic presses and splayed strokes, bringing to life the dynamism of the pliant East Asian brush. In its mature form, the chancery script calls for graceful fluidity and mindful control. In Buddhism, the same characters denote the "realm of formlessness," where all beings are free of illusions and divisions based on their place of origin.
