Primordial Chi - The Healing Energy

The word "Chi” roughly can be translated as "energy" in English. "Primordial Chi" is the essence of our health, a sense of fundamental healthiness. By connecting to our own inherent strength, we can heal from within. Utilizing the amazing innate healing power of our body and mind! It is not mystical, it is the most ordinary thing - we feel, we heal. Without feeling for self and others, it is difficult to relate with our existence.

Besides inner chi, there is the environmental energy all-around us. The interaction is mutual. And, by radiating good energy outward, we can attract more positive energy. The circle is infinite; the Indra's Net is infinite.

Chinese calligraphy, "Primordial Chi" in semi-cursive style. Sumi ink on rice paper. The size is 12.5 by 17 inches. Signed with the artist's seal "happiness, wealth, and longevity."

“Without Beginning or End: The Trans-Temporal Art of Yeachin Tsai”, An Essay by Robert R. Shane

“Without Beginning or End”
The Trans-Temporal Art of Yeachin Tsai

The Contentment of Mr. Orange, 2015, acrylic on paper

“The circle… is the synthesis of the greatest oppositions… it points most clearly to the fourth dimension.”
—Vassily Kandinsky

A blazing cadmium red-orange circle pulsates with mesmerizing force in Yeachin Tsai’s painting The Contentment of Mr. Orange (2015) from the artist’s series “Dot in the Space.” Compared to the small gray spot just off-center within its body, the orange circle looks unfathomably large, recalling graphic representations comparing size of the Sun to the Earth. The orange form’s fuzzy borders give the sense that this monumental circle’s energy is ready to burst outward, a force countered only by the inward gravitational pull of its mass. Floating in a dull yellow and gray void, the circle seems to exist in a no-place and a timeless no-time, but its phenomenal impact on the viewer situates it in the here and now. As the retinas tire of the color’s intensity, the viewer begins to see its afterimage; the circle’s hitherto invisible opposite—always already contained within itself—is revealed with the unfolding of time…
