Meditators 2011

I have made a suite of paintings of meditators.

While I was painting meditators, I found the paint beginning to evoke and touch on the immersive, mysterious experience of meditation.
The expansiveness, stillness, simplicity, taste, movement and above all the mystery of it. 
My hope is that the paintings become reminders of these qualities that everybody has experienced, that might help ignite people’s interest and even passion for practice.

My intention in making the paintings was to raise the funds to complete a retreat in the New Year: part of my training for ordination. 
The aim is to raise $900 towards the cost of the retreat. On the retreat we all help pay for the New Zealand retreatants flights, which is why it is a little more expensive.
