ENSO, by Daniel Kanaan
October 22 to December 10th, 2014
Daniel Kanaan works in a process called Watertype Enso. Enso is the Japanese word for an uninhibited hand drawn circle. In Zen Buddhism, Enso is intended to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The result is a series of works that are individual, like a watercolor, yet consistent, like a monotype and where the impermanence of water calligraphy is reversed and made permanent. Each work depends on the temperature and humidity of the day, and the state of mind of the practitioner. Variations in timing will change the solidity of the circle, the darkness of the background. Higher temperatures and lower humidities will generally solidify the circle, while the reverse conditions will have the opposite effect.
