Artist's description:

Inspired by looking at a still life of a rock collected from my travels in Spain, the forms suggest a group of people surrounding the central figure of a Minotaur. The grouping appear to vie for the attention of the Minotaur seeking for a kiss.


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.
