#1 - Enso
The “Enso” is a symbol of emptiness and wholeness in Zen. These oil works are made by dispersing paint with different liquids; then evaporation ensues, naturally leaving circles of residue. I then scratch and sand away like creating a palimpsest or new historical record. With this method I explore time, disintegration and the consequences of action or non-action on the environment, human connection, and interdependence.
