    Kensho Scrolls:

    “Kensho” is a Zen phrase referring to experiences of seeing the true nature of things, the path to achieving enlightenment facilitated by meditation. In the Soto school of Zen, meditation is performed facing a wall. This is why these works show their subjects against walls or wall-like expanses. One interpretation of the pieces in this series is as a metaphor for ourselves as living beings engaging “the wall” to achieve illumination. The work in this series is realized as scrolls. This is a time-honored way of presenting images in Japan, where artwork traditionally is not left out indefinitely, but selected for contemplation for its resonance with a specific occasion, then put away. They are created in diverse materials including Japanese washi paper and gold, silver and other metallic leaf papers, expressing the different dimensions of our experiences of the beautiful moments in our lives. Each image is created in a given size and material only once, making it a unique piece resonating with the idea of ichigo-ichie, “one time, one meeting” celebrating the uniqueness of each moment, embodied with particular clarity in the aesthetics of the Way of Tea.
