East Studio at One Zen Place
by Amy Dyson
Amy Dyson creates Enso every day in her studio at One Zen Place.
Enso means ‘circular form’ in the Japanese language and has been interpreted in many ways. Enso are created with one breath and produced by hand in one stroke. Enso are an expression of the artist’s inner self "in the moment".
A Japanese minimalist aesthetic, Enso have numerous meanings including enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe and the void. Enso may also represent a Zen mindset, tranquility, balance, infinity, wholeness, human consciousness and many other interpretations.
"Art perception is a reflection of life experience.
A reflection of the artist is intrinsic in all art.
Both of these factors are especially apparent within Enso,
as they are a reflection of the artist in that moment."
— Amy Dyson

Lascaux and Enso
Discoveries within the Upper Paleolithic art of Lascaux in France influenced art historian Amy Dyson to study mankind's perception of art, which led to extensive research in human consciousness. The Galloping Mare of Lascaux (c.17,000 B.C.E.) complements the nearby Enso that was created as a tribute to the cave of Lascaux with yellow ochre prehistoric symbolism etched within the background of the painting.
There are three kinds of people.
Those who see.
Those who see when they are shown.
Those that do not see.
—Leonardo Da Vinci
