Item Description

 

Liza Matthews, Lion's Roar art director, says of "Miracles of Each Moment", appearing originally in the magazine and now in print form in our Online Store that: "Making the enso - the Zen circle that conveys everything, the whole world, complete, the ultimate Zen symbol of emptiness - is kind of a practice. Ensos are traditionally done in sumi ink, black on white. When I first saw one of Kaz Tanahashi's color ensos, a breakthrough in the form, I put it on my must-have list. That began a long relationship with Kaz. He has come to Halifax three times to teach calligraphy and contributed a lot of work to the magazine. This calligraphy hangs on my wall at home. I really love the blue and gold paint, and it's a kind of a looser brush stroke than most ensos. How does he get the multicolored effect? He squeezes a bunch of paint on the paper, then he puts the brush into it, and psssshooo, one stroke!"

Kazuaki Tanahashi is an artist and writer trained in Japan and active in the United States as well as a Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science. He has taught East Asian calligraphy at numerous international conferences of calligraphy and lettering arts. As a painter, he is the pioneer of the genre of "one stroke painting" as well as the creator of multicolor ensos (Zen circles). Zen Mountain Monastery in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York has hosted his brush workshops since 1986.

Dimensions: 15" by 17"
