Lapis Waterfalls 瑠璃の瀧 is a special eight panel poured washi paperwork created for Komyoin Zen Temple in Kyoto. It resides in this 600 year old temple, and is on display through January 2024, and at special times of the year.
There is a particular flow when the washi paper fiber hits the screen and begins to dance. Zen principles of beauty in simplicity and nature have a hand in creation, inform my work with waterfalls and give it context in contemporary art.
