Asymmetrical Multipolarity Sunset
Glen Clarke (People’s Choice)
I am looking for a succinct Art Form without the superfluous imagery and decoys of aestheticism and composition. In Zen Buddhism, an ensō (円相 , “circle” ) is hand-drawn in one uninhibited brushstroke to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The ensō symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu, the void. A recent tour of the Silk Road across China allowed constant sightings and influences from numerous museum Mandalas along with regular roadside images of military hardware in waiting. I dreamt of a glorious sunset radiating with symbolism of every nation on our planet in harmony. This ethereal musing was quickly grounded, awakened by the reality of mans greed, hunger, and fascination with power.
