The lectures have been a great success. There is obviously an interest in the relation between Oriental painting and Western painting. The development and the look of paintings in China and Japan, which was determined by indigenous perceptions of time and space, was catalytic in determining new directions in painting in Europe at the birth of 'Modernism'. However, it's interesting that visual ideas from the east served a very different purpose in the west from that which originally drove them.
A brief respite from lectures, I am now on to new paintings at the studio. Below is 'Gate' with gold pearlescent pigment activating the space and holding light.
