Zvia Nahor//צביה נהור
In the last ten years Zvia has been practicing Shodo, the art of Japanese calligraphy as well as the art of movement, Qi Kong.
Both arts originate from the east though she practices them in the west.
Shodo and Qi Kong are linked, support and broaden each other in many aspects.
Calligraphy is expressed in her art through the variety of brush strokes and shades of black ink .
In Qi Kong she practices repetition of meditative body movements. In Calligraphy practice, she also repeats by the brush strokes again and again to create the Japanese character- Kanji.
Each Kanji has its own life energy, created by lines and stains. It contains a deep understanding of life in our universe.
Learning the combinations of different pictures that create a Kanji helps to understand more about the philosophy of the east. It may also lead us to live in harmony with ourselves and others.
The art of Shodo , its philosophy and its meditation have been very helpful for her , providing a very powerful healing energy in a life flinging between happiness and sorrow.
