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 this serene energy to her art and offers literary commentary regarding the origins of her techniques and methodologies.
Adjacent to the gallery is Amy Dyson's art studio where guests may also view current works-in-progress. Dyson is presently working on oil paintings of master composers. During the upcoming 2021-22 winter season, the gallery will feature the Grand Composer Collection. The acoustic sound in One Zen Place art gallery is remarkable due to the auspicious golden ratio dimensions. A grand player piano will perform the music of these master composers as guests browse the gallery. Guests may easily change the piano music with an iPad and select any of the composers presented in the gallery.
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 Ensō every day in her studio at One Zen Place.
Ensō means ‘circular form’ in the Japanese language and has been interpreted in many ways. Ensō are created with one breath and produced by hand in one stroke. Ensō are an expression of the artist’s inner self "in the moment" and communicate the release of mind that allows the body to create with a flow of energy.
Derived from a Japanese minimalist aesthetic, Ensō symbolize enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void. Ensō symbology may also represent a Zen mindset, tranquility, balance, infinity, wholeness, human consciousness and numerous other meanings.
A reflection of the artist is intrinsic in art. One's perception of art is a reflection of life experience and awareness. These truths are especially apparent within Ensō, as they are a reflection of the moment the Ensō was created by the artist. It takes a lifetime of experience to attain that moment in time and Ensō genuinely reflect that journey.

Lascaux and Enso
Discoveries within the Upper Paleolithic art of Lascaux in France led 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.) is the perfect complement for the nearby Enso that was created as a tribute to the cave of Lascaux with yellow ochre prehistoric symbolism within the background of the painting.
