Deep Meditation

Deep Meditation

Aside from the three digital collages, this is my first creation after completing my recent project on thinking big. After the challenge of translating certain concepts into artworks, I have opted to design something simple. I wanted to build upon characters that I have already used to make longer words. This follows from my current learning of the written language where the characters are very much like building blocks.

Opting for something simple, I actually wanted to use the word for simplicity itself but this unfortunately also means naive. So I’ve gone for a Buddhist word meaning deep meditation. The first character here is called chan and means peace of mind as I used in the thinking big project. The second is called nuo and denotes religious origin.
