“Painting without the Painter” is an exhibition of 24 original, fine art images conjured by Atlanta’s only fully transmitted Soto Zen priest, Reverend Zenkai Taiun Michael Joseph Elliston Rōshi in collaboration with sumi ink and the fundamental forces of nature.
Each image is a visual koan for viewers to decipher; a tool to dissolve the barriers to enlightenment.
During the reception on Oct. 12, Elliston-Roshi will discuss “Painting non-Painting; Medium as Message” and the connection between Zen and creative expression.
Proceeds from sales benefit Atlanta Soto Zen Center, a 501c3 organization.
Through Nov. 18.
