I've been slightly obsessed with the ensō circle lately. It's an ancient zen practice which describes enlightenment: You paint a circle in one stroke, in one breath. Half the circle inhale and the rest exhale, in one fluent wave. A perfect circle is only possible for a clear mind; in this aspect the practice is quite similar to archery. You can't hide your nature or issues; even the slightest chatter from the mind will cause a diversion, a dent in the roundness. In my routine I've added my footsteps: In life - first you identify with your image, you believe you are the footprints you make. Time and experience wear away these prints - the ego - and what remains is what you truly are, and somewhere there the circle becomes a circle. These are the first three I've completed: The blue series. Each painting is 145 centimetres wide.
