This is one of two works are a single enso (circle) created following a slow smooth breath. A gentle steady inhale and exhale. Focussing my mind and bringing myself to being present in the act of creation. More mindful. They are a physical record of a captured moment created during lockdown 2020. With a half section of the inner space gilded with 24 carat gold leaf. Northern hemisphere in Optimism I and Southern in II. I am reminded that we have a choice of how to experience and react to that which we cannot control. Is the contained space half empty or half full? Ink on Chinese mulberry paper, mounted to Fabriano cartridge substrate (200gsm) on birch panel with aluminium subframe.

Process is central within the painting practice of Rod McIntosh. His mark making has a fluidity and honesty that reveals itself through a muted pallet of monotones. This lends the work a striking and minimal appearance, which coalesces with the quiet sensitivity to his materials, time invested and action. Presence and concentration is key to his practice in cultivating a meditative quality. Examining his temporal gestures, alongside ideas of mindfulness, permanence, attachment and acceptance. For McIntosh the provenances and particular characteristics of each material are of great importance. Following closely traditional eastern recipes for archival inks and pastes he works upon delicate Chinese papers that absorb every fluid gestural movement as he accepts the brevity of a final committed action. With his body, the breath along with materials, and repetitive often-obsessive processes, focuses an attention to the present. Observing and recording the moment of creation within a continuum. He speaks of them as; “Physical meditations, that offers himself, and the viewer, a moment to pause.”
