“Hundreds of butterflies flitted in and out of sight like short-lived punctuation marks in a stream of consciousness without beginning or end.”
― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
This Zen Chicken is in the act of active meditation and thoughts are flitting around in his stream of consciousness.
Zen Chicken drawing/painting/prints are based on creative contemplation and the practice of tai chi combined with odd, eccentric, or humoristic tangents. Viewers are invited to become part of the art as an added component. The artist invites augmenting the pieces with captions, literary connections, or having a conversation with the chickens. Quiet or laughing meditation with the Zen Chickens is also welcomed. This artwork as insight-entertainment. Each Zen Chicken opens manifold layers of potential meaning and referential aesthetics.
