Satori
Satori is a mini collage [4"X4"X1.5” D] created for an Annual 30/30 challenge. Satori: Japanese Buddhist term for awakening, "comprehension; understanding". It is derived from the Japanese verb satoru. In the Zen Buddhist tradition, satori refers to the experience of kenshō, "seeing into one's true nature". A circle is formed with a piece of gold colored necklace enclosing a suminagashi paper. A gold paper cast face is set off center to the right. Works were created by 30+ Artists, creating 30 pieces in 30 days of the month of June. This is a mixed media/collage done on stretched canvas. It is lightweight and can be easily hung in a cubicle because of its small size.
