ENSō – THE LIGHTNESS OF IMPERMANENCE
There is the same amount of water on earth as there was when the earth was formed. Water is the only substance that is found naturally on earth in three forms: liquid, gas, solid. This body of work explores the continuous movement of water on, above and below the surfaces of the Earth. The circle of continuous transformation in nature involves the exchange of continuous energy and movement, creating the circle of life.
In Zen Buddhism, ENSō, the circle, is a universal symbol of wholeness, the circle of infinity and the cyclical nature of existence. It symbolizes: strength, elegance, the universe and the acceptance of imperfection as perfect. It also represents the oneness of life and all things contained within it, the visible and the invisible, simplicity, completeness, endlessness and perfect harmony.
