The motif of the enso (the circle) from the Japanese represents the enlightenment experience. The enso is typically drawn in one thick brushstroke. The enso represents absolute reality and the void in Zen art. Automatism with wet ink feels like the perfect match of concept and material and allows me extraordinary freedom.'
