Abstract Calligraphy w/ Eastern Accent

.
.
.
Lisa Travers work seems to simultaneously mimic eastern and western alphabets. The gestures are so lyrical, like eastern script and yet you swear you might be able to read them.
.
This image is from her Blog, where you'll find more images and information.
.
You'll especially want to read the Post, "Writing Without Meaning" Part II. Her Thesis so easily explains the things I've wanted to say about abstract calligraphy and writing.
