MU: Beyond Duality - Art Beatus, Vancouver, B.C.,

In the contemporary era of divisive politics and fake news, going beyond binary positions is more important than ever. The Buddhist concept of 'mu' is a useful reminder here. Mu recognizes that there is no definitive right or wrong, true or false, or good or bad. These are positions of polarity dependent on both time and space, history and contexts. These sculptures can be tools for meditation to strive for what Zen Buddhists call, nothingness-- arriving at a point of transcendence.

ARTWORK @ MORIUMIUS, JAPAN

A big thank you to everyone at Moriumius who have made my stay memorable.

'Egg Class' (image below), was a photograph I wanted to take before arriving in Ishinomaki.  In retrospect, I think I took this photograph to show hope in the eyes of the children in a funny but positive way.  A wish for a brighter future for the next generation of children who have witnessed the traumatic events of the 2011 tsunami.  I hope the children can continue to lead Japan with resilience, a big heart, but most of all, lots of laughter, to propel them into the future.  The second work made at Moriumius is a sculpture entitled "Red Antenna". It carries with it a message of love and peace to the farthest reaches of the universe.

Looking out at the night sky, I can hear the footsteps of the children running down the hallway of this restored school.  Their laughter is contagious and inspire color to this dark green landscape.  The flowers and multicolored 'egg-glasses' the children made during their stay, show us the power and energy they have in bringing life back into this tiny fishing community.

EGG FOREST

A temporary site-specific installation created in the mountains of Ogatsu, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.  This work was made with the help of children during my residency.

Walking through the forest, I noticed some trees with their bark removed.  The red sap bleeding down their trunks made me feel a certain pain emanating from them.  A prayer was made to each of the trees to commemorate the lives of children who had lost their lives in the tsunami.  The eggshells used here symbolize the rebirth of the spirits which exist deep within the forest.
