The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflection;
The water has no mind to receive their image.

The Chinese word 'ziran' is composed of two characters, which taken together mean 'nature', taken one by one they mean 'self-suchness', implying freed, unforced, the self-realized human nature.

Both artistic and meditative practice elevates one's body, mind, and spirit from internal and external awareness and observation. It restores one's lost balance, enhancing one's pure creativity, connecting one to nature, rhythm, concentration, contemplation, and introspection.

About me

My name is Lichun Tseng. I am an artist from Taiwan who is living and working in the Netherlands since 2007. I received my MFA in AKV/St-Joos in 2009. I have practiced calligraphy since 1989, moreover, the practice of calligraphy and research of Eastern philosophy and art stimulate me a lot for my artistic field. In 2010, I founded Toward ziran, a studio in Rotterdam, which focuses on creativity and Taoism in art and film production and research as well as offering courses and workshops.

My works reflect upon the integral totality of time and 'suchness' in experiencing one's life, aiming to present it in rhythms of slowness and tranquility, revealing the passage of moments in time. The works are inspirited and influenced by Eastern philosophy and art - the rhythm of moving and still, the concept of void and reality, the relation between one's inner and outer state of mind.

Therefore, I teach Chinese calligraphy and ink-painting in combination with meditative and creative exercises. In between Void and Reality, I invite you to come and recreate your inner and outer landscapes.
