The Enso


The Enso is a single brush stroke that captures and represents the world at the precise moment the artist makes the stroke.

Traditionally, the circle has a break in it. This is meant to express that the world is at the same time perfect and imperfect, complete and incomplete.

This Eastern philosophical concept influenced both the Dadaists and composer John Cage in their creation of works according to the “Laws of Chance.”

On this rainy day, I’m seeing mostly perfection in the handle of my coffee cup.
