Taste of the Five-Flavored Herb, 2018
Ink on paper, original 16×12″
This painting is part of a series called Breath Portraits. I sit in connection with my breath. I then paint, sometimes following repetitive brushstrokes as a pattern, other times allowing a burst of movement borne from the breath. In others, I pour ink on the paper and breathe it around the page. Whatever the form, connection to breath is at the heart of all these works.
