Poem by Li Bai, Poet of Tang Dynasty (744AD–762AD)
See My Friend Mr Wen off to his old home at White Goose Peak of Yellow Mountain
Yellow Mountain is four thousand miles high, and thirty-two peaks’ shapes look like clusters of lotus.
Gorgeous cliffs contrast with stone pillars, some are like lotus buds, some are like golden hibiscus.
Recalling the past, I once climbed to the top, looking at the old pines on the Tianmu Mountain in a distance.
The remains of fairy polished jade are still there, and there are still traces of fairy’s feathers left.
I know that you have to go to Yellow Mountain alone today, maybe you will meet the Taoist Wen Boxue.
You Say goodbye to the Five Mountains for collect the best things, climb the rock, and experience the dangers.
You Returning to the White Goose Ridge and have a leisure life, when you are thirsty, you drink mineral water from the Dansha well.
When the phoenix calls, I will come. You have to prepare a cloud as a car for us to visit the Temple of Heaven.
Traveling to Lingyang fairy mountain, walking in the fragrant of osmanthus trees.
Streams twist and turn, screen-like green hills stand under the clear sky.
In the future, I will come to visit from time to time, crossing the arch-shaped bridge and walk into the rainbow.

The cosmopolitan diaspora artist Lee Chun-yi (born Taiwan, 1965) moved to Hong Kong as a youth, pursued graduate studies in the United States, and returned to Taiwan to embark on an artistic career. With a revolutionary method departing from the conventional use of a paintbrush, Lee Chun-Yi employs calligraphy through the use of Chinese seals and ink rubbings. He carves Chinese characters into pieces of soft wood to form chops, then stamps them repetitively on the paper to form a semi-photographic image. Literally building up a visual composition through words, his paintings function as symbolic poems, with the strength of the stamp indicating the intended tone of expression.
Lee has participated in over 30 group and solo exhibitions internationally. His works have been collected by the Ashmolean Museum of Oxford University, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum of Harvard University, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Phoenix Art Museum, USA; the Jiangsu Art Museum, the Qingdao Art Museum, China; the National Arts Education Institute, Taipei; the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and other public and private collections.
