Zen Landscape: Red Sky 2
Reclaimed wood 11" x 11 x 1"
Series: Zen Landscapes
Each piece in the Zen Waters series is made from found objects and materials. Some pieces in this series are unmistakably traditional Eastern or Western landscapes. Others, like this piece, are more abstract and rely on horizontal lines to imply a landscape. The found objects are often used as found. When possible, and appropriate, the original paint, stains, chips and splinters remain intact.
It's important to note that I am not a Zen Master. I am simply an artist. I do, however, practice a daily meditation and create these works immediately following the experience. Each is begun with the intent of creating an intuitive artwork, often an abstract artwork, that evokes a strong presence in the natural world -- a tree, flower or a landscape.
Individual pieces in the series are not given titles, just numbers. Also, the inspiration for each artwork is personal and treated as such.
