Calligraphy by Yunfu:
Artist's gestures move so fast, just like a quick storm; although the strokes haven't been placed yet, the momentum of the painting occurs first.
Undoubtedly, Su Shi (1037-1101) didn't meet Daozi (ca.685-758) in person, yet I am fortunate to see Yixuan paint. I feel joyful from the bottom of my heart. I would like to quote Su Shi's phrase to express my feelings.
