Lions Roar : September 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN SepteMBer 2009 63 Figures in meditation—the Buddha, monks, Zen students—are the central motif in Michael Newhall’s paintings and sculptures. A Zen priest in the lineage of Kobun Chino Roshi, he is the abbot of Jikoji, a Soto Zen temple and retreat center in Los Gatos, California. Newhall’s work derives directly from his experi- ence as a meditation practitioner. His early figures were cartoons—ink drawings, and watercolor on paper. Later paintings included sumi-ink paintings on rice paper of monks’ heads, and luminous watercolor paintings like the one above. Currently he is making large oil paintings as well as computer-generated art- works. All take as their topic his deepening relationship with Buddhism. His style expresses vividly the excitement of witnessing the dharma coming to the West. See www.michaelnewhall.com.
