There is a Buddhist belief that form and void are one and the same. Form comes and goes. It is not constant, only change is constant. Maybe form never exists. It is an illusion in our mind that also does not exist. To me this conundrum expresses the epistemological crisis of our world. We must ask ourselves, “Do we really know what we think we know?”
I synthesize abstract form and Buddhist practice to explore this sense of uncertainty. Repeatedly layering gestural calligraphic marks and blending them away reinforces a sensation of flux in my mind. The result of this process is a field of subtle color in which the viewer is left wondering what if anything is portrayed.
