This print is part of an ongoing body of work created using a technique of call and response - allowing imagery, composition and palate to develop intuitively. For me they represent a return to printmaking with a focus on my relationship with shape and colour. Breaking away from the constraints of past work ethics the shapes form a personal visual vocabulary and exist freely in any combination. During this process, I spontaneously made an enzō, a Zen Buddhist symbol. The formation of this symbol has led me to consider the instinctual basis of mark making and further propelled a personal exploration of the psychology of design. The enzo is a circle created by a single brush stroke, an expression of the moment in which the mind is free to let the body create.
