Namu Dai Bosa

Collages by Armando Sáenz Carrillo

December 6 2014 to March 6, 2015


Namu dai bosa (Union with the Great Enlightened) comprises 6 series of exquisite miniature collages which bring to mind the pithiness of Japanese Haikus.


It is an exercise in simplicity and intuition in which the elements used and the construction of each piece reflect the Zen tenets which the artist espouses.
