Artist Statement

// BLURB //
The Yangtze never looked so cozy as the night Li Bai tried to hug the moon. The old tale goes something like this: Li Bai, a famous drunk and poet, was, well, drunk. Of course he was also artsy, and you know how artsy folks get when they drink, right? On that fateful night Li Bai took his boat out to the middle of the Yangtze River (because why not?). What he found in the middle of the river was the moon, staring up at him. “Three cheers!” he may have said as he moved in to embrace his old friend. Li Bai drowned that night, but his poems live on forever. Li Bai is sort of like a Chinese Dionysus—except Li Bai was a man and not a god. Li Bai has been honored as the great man he was by artists through the generations. Soami painted him in nature, and our Liu Dao collective calligraphs his poems in wild cursive script while enraptured in the warm fuzzy glow of a wine buzz as one stumbling down the mountain after perfecting drunken Kung Fu.
