"Out of life comes death,
and out of death, life.
Out of the young, the old,
and out of the old, the young.
Out of waking, sleep,
and out of sleep, waking.
The stream of creation and dissolution
— Heraclitus in The Circle of Life
Repetitions in this series have to do with attention placed, and placed again, on ink applied to paper. Consistently following the breath, finding stability within the exhale. Placing attention is a method for opening the larger context of internal spaciousness. In this way painting becomes a method of meditation.
Through attention to the small details and variations in this series the viewer can become absorbed, and relish being transported to a spacious universe of infinite possibility.
