Artist's description:

Zazen | Belalcázar Rock | 25th April - 5th May 2015 | 45.5 x 38cm (with details)
This is a new painting study for a larger piece I am now working on. It has been built up with layers of oil, capturing the changes of colour/ light throughout the day and evening and perspective shifts through its movement in space and time, using fields of colour and the drawn line.

Zazen is considered the heart of Japanese Soto Zen Buddhist practice. The aim of zazen is just sitting, that is, suspending all judgmental thinking and letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without getting involved in them. In this case painting as one sits and creates, without expectations or holding onto thoughts, allowing images, thoughts, words and feeling to flow through into the process of painting and being surprised by the outcome at the end (which is one of the most important tenets of Zen: to be surprised and reveal the Brahman, who hides within each of us). Through the rock, like the flower, to see the universe in its entire.
