About The Artwork

Zen Enso brushed in black sumi ink on rice paper, mounted and ready to be framed. Zen Enso circle brushed in the flying white style with a spirited interaction between a full and empty brush stroke. The Enso stands for non-duality, Oneness, fullness, perfection, our Awakened nature, the Buddha nature. This Zen Enso called 'Autumn Moon Enso', is inspired by a poem of the Zen T'ang poet Han-shan, alias Cold Mountain. The first two lines of this poem say: My mind is like the autumn moon clear and bright in a pool of jade …. (Translation by Red Pine, in his book The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain) Original size of the Enso circle calligraphy in cm: 93 x 70,5 x 0,2 cm .

My artwork comprises Zen calligraphy, watercolor and ink paintings, and abstract calligraphies. My mediums are ink, watercolors and natural pigments on rice paper, mainly Xuan paper. I wield the Chinese and Japanese brush, preferably the flexible sheep's hair brush. Many of my Zen calligraphies express the Emptiness teaching from the Heart Sutra, which has been the original inspiration for my Japanese calligraphy artwork. Other calligraphies focus on the teachings of the Diamond Sutra, Platform Sutra, or depict Zen koan, Zen poetry or single kanji. In my watercolors and ink paintings I strive for a pictorial synthesis of the subject, in the spirit of Japanese ink painting, using bold washes and vivid brush strokes.
