Shakuhachi freestyle


Jan Karpíšek: Shakuhachi freestyle, acryl on canvas, 135x160 cm, 2008

Original painting by Jan Karpíšek "Shakuhachi freestyle" shows miscellaneous beings floating on the ocean of world, the islands of Gold shines afar, we're breathing into shakuhachi flutes, somebody's even drowning, but bodhisattva is skating on water with a skate of water he himself made of water as well. Painting looks unfinished but author said: FINISHED! and rather demonstrates that mind creates judgements and criteria than shows a perfectly completed picture. aum :)

Whose hand and the rest in flowing of time?


Jan Karpíšek: Whose hand and the rest in flowing of time?, acryl on canvas, 45x54 cm, 2008

Original painting by Jan Karpíšek "Whose hand and the rest in flowing of time?" shows a being in the world of phenomenons who is entangled in the same substance he is made of. We see his blood and flesh and thoughts. Well, whose hand is that, grandpa?
