Artist Statement from Zac Nafziger
For this project, the concept given was "Welcome." This brought up ideas of connectivity & melding of people & thoughts & ideas from the world around us. From that, I created this abstracted enso – a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create.
The enso symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe & the void – in this case, specifically designed to pull a warm & cool spectrum into the swirling image inside the fracturing background – symbolizing both our connection & impact to everything around us.
