“Because time is endless
and our planet vast,
I [paint these sumi e] for a person
who will one day be born
with my sort of heart.”
-Paraphrased from Poems of Ancient India Tr by Andrew Schelling 1828S
Just as the above quotation was about writing these poems for a person somewhere who will be born one day and understand them, so my painting is like that.
I paint my abstract sumi e from my heart and soul, not from my linear head way of being. And it’s a non dualistic vision of unity of us and the world, of us together as one people. This is what I understand and what I paint.
The moon like a pallid ember began to go out in the banks of fog…
– Antoine de Saint Exupéry “ Wind, Sand & Stars” 1855S
