Lapis Waterfalls 瑠璃の瀧 is an eight-panel poured washi paperwork created for Komyoin Zen Temple, Tofukuji, Kyoto. It resides in this 600 year old temple, and is on display at special times of the year.
When the washi paper fibers hit the screen, they begin to dance. Zen principles of beauty in simplicity and nature have a hand in creation, inform the waterfalls, and give a contemporary art context.
