Zen BrushpoemseBook - 2011
This book of Zen poetry and art blends simple, haiku-like poetry with bold minimalist ink brush drawings. Zen Brushpoems connects the creative insights of Haiku-like poetry with the dynamic interplay of the written word and painted image. This subtle and profound medium of poetic expression has been inspired by the revolutionary work of artist Paul Reps. Each of the 100 brushpoems in this Zen art book is a statement, a declaration, an answer, and finally a question whose purpose is to evoke rather than describe, to suggest rather than explain, to operate rather than close. Like haiku, these brushpoems are deceptively simple. But, if approached with a gentle receptivity, they will resonate deeper and deeper until they begin to fill with the Zen-like awareness that resides so unnoticed in everyday consciousness.
