MYTCHELL/mead . contemporary fine art . STEEL/wood
  The Enso Series.

For years I have explored the gap at the horizon line – a strip of ether that resides between material and space. To me this gap is where spirit, muse, inspiration and imagination dwell. It is the mystical combining of animation and inanimation, of physical and non-physical, thought and no-thought. I watched as over time my horizon lines began to bend more and more dramatically until they had curved all the way into circles. It was then that I discovered something that had been there all along – the Enso. The Enso is a Zen meditation art form, and for me artwork has always been a meditation. So I find it fitting that this simple, profound image was born from meditation.

Every piece I create is an effort to make a contribution in consciousness. Just in Being, we contribute to our world. When we work to elevate our Being, we also elevate our contribution. When we bring consciousness to Being, we elevate consciousness to all things.

The way steel and rust decipher the Enso provides a unique articulation of the aesthetic of its origins. Within it I see a power in being vulnerable and honest. These works are ragged and raw, showing every drip of the brush, every weld and cut and blemish in the wood and steel as they intimately blend natural objects and processes through asymmetry, simplicity, economy, austerity and modesty.

The result is a subtly refined poignancy.
