Art I Wish I Could Live With…

This art amazes me.  The artist is Paul Jenkins, 86 years old, who started studying art at the Art Student’s League in New York City the year before I was born. His technique has been called “controlled paint pouring.” The paint may have made contact with canvas but it has not stopped moving since. I am moved with it.

Enjoy the viewing here and visit his website www.pauljenkins.net for more.

from the biography on his website: An ongoing interest in Eastern religions and philosophy, the study of the I Ching, along with the writings of Carl Jung prompted Jenkins’ turn toward inward reflection and mysticism which have dominated his aesthetic as well as his life.
