LIFE WITH FULL ATTENTION
A collection of ink illustrations on the subject of awareness of body and mind.
These ink drawings are part of a series on the theme of awareness of body and mind I have created for a project with the Brixton Buddhist Community.
Ink has become my favourite medium. As with watercolour I work here with unpredictability and risk. These two factors require of the artist total presence but also a sense of openness to whatever comes up.
Art making then becomes a sort of playful dialogue between the mind and what is happening.
The drawings have been made on heavily textured 300 gsm Fabriano paper. The beautiful heavy texture of this paper adds to the misty feeling achieved by the use of the wet in wet technique in this series.
