The One Zen Place fine art gallery in Vero Beach exhibits the artwork of Amy Dyson and her protégé, "Möbius the Sculptor". The gallery of art is comprised of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Mediums included are oils, natural minerals, watercolors, acrylics, dyes, Sumi-e inks, gold leaf, gold dust, diamond dust, silver leaf, metal leaf, granite, marble, stainless steel, and rare woods.
Artist and art historian Amy Dyson emphasizes minimalism in her art. She has a preference for single brushstroke paintings and Ensō. Dyson's Zen approach is always "in the moment" and she often demonstrates her processes to guests.
Dyson is honored to have studied with masters and adepts in multiple disciplines and has discovered her path within. She brings a serene energy to her art and offers literary commentary regarding the origins of her techniques and artistic methodologies.
Adjacent to the gallery is Amy Dyson's art studio where guests may view current works-in-progress.
East Studio at One Zen Place
"My favorite time in the studio is when John Ryan is playing piano because his original music deeply inspires me. When I listen to John's music, I am moved to create art. One of my most-used chop seals is engraved with the ideogram, 'Created with the music of John Ryan'. We have demonstrated our arts together in many live performances, but we are now opening our studios to the world as we progress to live-streaming podcasts from One Zen Place Art and Piano Gallery."

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

Please return soon to view our new online gallery of fine art that will feature works-in-progress and video revealing the kinetic movement of many sculptures in our gallery.

At One Zen Place, our primary focus is art and music—and together we have several new endeavors to share with the public soon. Sign up for our updates and stay tuned for our upcoming live-streaming podcasts of art & music by Amy Dyson and John Ryan.
