Kill the Buddha 1 and 2
I went to the storage room the other day to look for and photo some old collages and finally decided to look in the portfolio I knew had some very old work in it. 99% of the contents consists of collages, but there were a few drawings and paintings, and this was one of them. 1983, yikes. That was about the end of my art work (except for the knit designing I did) for many years as my oldest daughter was born in 1985.
On the Road has published a provocative prompt (and unfortunately the last one) this week, based on the Zen Koan “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.” Of course I had to consult the Magnetic Oracle.
remember to dance
like ghosts laughing in rhythm
with vast foolishness
I also wrote my own interpretation of the prompt, based on my painting, which is titled “Web 1”. Although I did not find a “Web 2”.
the net is fragile–
what was never there
