Painting Enlightenment: Experiencing Wisdom and Compassion through Art and Science
Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens presents "Painting Enlightenment: Experiencing Wisdom and Compassion through Art and Science," featuring works by Japanese scientist and artist Iwasaki Tsuneo (1917-2002).
Incorporating characters from the sacred Buddhist text, the Heart Sutra, every painting creates a contemplative journey and meditation on the interconnectedness of the universe. Iwasaki collapses distinctions between image, text, and thought with imagery representative of both scientific phenomena and Buddhist principles.
Painting Enlightenment is organized by the Louisiana State University Museum of Art.
