Painting: Ink, Gesso, Black & White, Paper on Paper.
Part of the ongoing exploration into the nature of time and memory, this piece also encapsulates the time taken to create.
The enso has a great deal of meaning in zen culture - for me it symbolises, amongst other things completeness, eternity and the trajectory of life.
Brush strokes are made very fast then the materials change nature as they dry, influencing the next stage. Uncertainty remains right up until the piece is completed. Absolute focus is required as, once a mark has been made, it can never be taken back.
