Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh said, ‘Once we recognize that all things are impermanent, we have no problem enjoying them. In fact, real peace and joy are only possible when we see clearly into the nature of impermanence.’
Kwan explained, ‘The practice of drawing and meditation reinforced my recognition of impermanence, awakening my inner self to experience the real peace, joy and freedom. In the process of art creation, no brushstroke can be the same. This is more than technique and control, but the fact that ink, water, paper, temperature, humidity…… multiple conditions are changing in every millisecond. This randomness makes art unique, and life interesting.’
