About The Artwork

Zen Chickens promote creativity. Zen chickens are action calligraphy inspired by a 11-year practice of tai chi. Zen chicken art is active meditation. Zen chickens invite you to playful, relaxed, creativity. I am inspired by Zen calligraphers, flower arranging, my Japanese pen pals, mail art, art history, and tai chi. I create a Zen Chicken every day as a form of meditation and creative connection to inner forces. I draw Zen Chickens quickly in the mornings to jump start my day with creative zing. I hope viewers feel surprise, fun, creativity, and peacefully happy to share in my meditation practice. Zen Chickens appear when India ink flows onto archival sometimes rough, sometimes smooth, 140 lb. watercolor paper. I spontaneously combine other art supplies to the emerging chickens. Added art media includes rubber stamping in archival inks and vermilion acrylgouache signature. Enjoy collecting Zen Chickens. One Zen Chicken is hatched per day.

Honoria Starbuck (Miami, Florida) grew up on Key Biscayne, an island off the coast of Miami. She studied art and art history at the University of Texas and holds an interdisciplinary PhD in Fine Arts, Communications, and Education. Honoria is influenced by art history stretching back to cave art. The zen chicken series is specifically influenced by expressive calligraphic artists and the asemic writing movement. Zen chickens also stem from the abstraction of Ikebana, the flowing flowers of Emile Nolde, the frottage of Max Ernst, the eye of Man Ray and Dada, the diffusion of ink by George Grosz, as well as current events. In addition, Honoria’s artwork is a form of moving meditation closely related to her 14-year practice of tai chi. Honoria has decades of diverse experiences as a Mail Artist in the international Correspondence Art Network through which her work has been exhibited in over 400 exhibitions including twice in the Venice Biennale. Honoria has also worked in Internet art creating the first Internet opera (1995) which was recognized by the Global Bangemann Challenge for innovation. Honoria’s theme is flow. Flow connects the molecules of pigment into patterns on the paper and intellectual themes flow from one individual artwork into the next. The Zen Chicken theme has a strong current of humor and flexibility as the dilettante rooster roams through a wide range of entanglements from Japanese flower arranging to modern art. Honoria is a professor of practice in the Art and Entertainment Technology Department in the College of Fine Art at The University of Texas at Austin.
