“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.
