Imakita Kōsen (1816-1892)

X

X

X

In Zen, ensō ( , “circle”)

is a circle that is hand-drawn
in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes
to express a moment
when the mind is free to let the body create.
These paintings were done as a type of moving meditation,
so therefore unlike conventional artists
who strive for variety and originality,
these artists brushed the same subjects

over and over,

using the same pattern strokes.
The paintings showed not only the spiritual quality of the artist,
but the uniqueness of each moment in time as well.
So each one is different,
even though done by the same person
moments apart.

Playing with freedom

a certain amount of foundational study.

“Scott LaFaro, The Short Life of a Master Bassist”

http://nepr.net/post/scott-lafaro-short-life-master-bassist#stream/0

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/IIzbINNrqcQ/hqdefault.jpg 

“…In a December 29, 1960 letter addressed to his lover Gloria Gabriel,
the dancer to whom he dedicated “Gloria’s Step,”
Scott LaFaro wrote:

X

“One important thing is that I realize day by day
the true artist and musician is becoming
more and more meaningless in terms of public comprehension.
This brings about the situation of whether
I should spend these hours and months
developing what I seem to be able to foresee,
or should I dump it
and
get another job as an entertainer again.
My day consists of such a singular preoccupation
—the physicology of music.
I’m in the position of having nothing
you can put your finger on for sale.”

BEAUTIFUL + TRUE NORTH INTEGRITY

Once an artist barrels their art
down the mercantile waterfall,
the integrity
of their unrepeatable/unique/sacred vision is shattered.
Water FALLS.

X

WATERFALLS,
for artists,
are a metaphor of risk,
a willingness to trust the FLOW,
knowing the magnitude of the force is SACRED,
and
the FORTITUDE + COURAGE
to dive/soar/break
into a NEW river,
an unknown vision/frontier,
and
uncharted visions
is
REQUISITE!

COURAGE TO CREATE.
