    In connection with the What it is to be me... exhibition at the Elizabeth James Gallery in South London (12-24/04/2017, opening Tuesday 11 April at 7pm, all welcome) I will be also be creating art behind the gallery's window this Saturday 8 April from 1-4pm. These Live Art Saturdays have been going on for a while and are an invitation for people to step into the gallery and take a closer look at the creative process. It's the first time I do something like this so, naturally, I am a little nervous but I'm sure it will be fun on the day...

    #12 Yes, I enjoyed my time there @Dean Owen. I was there just long enough to start grasping the language. I spent the majority of my time in Onoda, down in the Yamaguchi Prefecture. Unlike the larger cities, there weren't many English speaking people, so it was a great immersion.

    The tsaklis certainly appear to tell a story.

    #8 I had no idea you spent time in Japan. I had a similar experience at an old farm house in Shizuoka. These tsaklis were commissioned by lamas to be used in various rituals. They depict the various deities and icons of Vajrayana Buddhism such as Hevajra and his consort Nairatmya. I have quite a few that depict what appears to be a white conch shell, Sankha being the goddess of the conch.

    #5 These were painted on commission from a lama or monastery by Buddhist monks and depict many of the deities and icons of Vajrayana Buddhism. "The small painting would be placed in an offering bowl with wheat or rice in it, or else put on a korma, a special sculptural offering made of roasted barley flour and butter, the shape differing with each deity" (Treasures of Tibetan Art)

    Good Karma indeed! Interesting little pieces of history you hold @Dean Owen. I'm curious as to the symbolism or folk tales behind each.

    I remember spending some time with one local during my time in Japan who was a storyteller of old folk tales. He loved telling telling Yamata no Orochi legends. He had similar small artwork (on parchment) that depicted the stories.

    Cool stuff!

    That was a sumptuous introduction of an Artist that would never have entered my consciousness otherwise - and another hat-tip to the diversity emerging in Australia - because the identity of any nation is not the fools that live there, but the human beings who emerged out of that country with a touch of brilliance, or bravado or beautiful spirit. I will ponder on Tyrone Wright “Rone” for than just a share - fantastic work on his part.

    Emergence as art is always fascinating. It is interesting that the Mandelbrot set which also looks so beautiful is not its natural colour and the process of colouring is interesting in itself. The link below takes us through that :

    Colouring the Mandelbrot Set
    http://yozh.org/2010/12/01/mset005/

    This article describes "escape time" and goes on to say :

    "If we know that a particular point generates a sequence which escapes, and we know the escape time of that sequence, then we can color that point based upon its escape time. By doing this, pretty spectacular images can be created."

    Colour brings home the details that would otherwise be missed in the natural black and white and adds the one quality to complexity that all humans appreciate, that of beauty.
