Artistic Calligraphy

By now you should know how I feel about letters and writing; abstract painting and the combining of the two. Enter Monica Dengo.
This is such a good example of calligraphy being the sole content and context and composition of an artwork. For me, it's a pleasant combination of pleasing colors and action gestures. The fact that it actually says something is an added bonus.
This image is from her very fascinating Website. When you go there, be patient and just watch the slide show (first). You'll see images that you might not otherwise encounter. And definitely check out her "Book As Body" collaboration on the ART page.
