The title to this series is taken from a Brian Eno and Harold Budd recording which created evocative soundscapes. After studying Song and Tang Dynastic artwork at the MET in NYC with a curator of Chinese art I found a landscape that matched the art and sound that was in my head.
This series was a true labor of love as I studied with a curator at the Met for a year and was given access to Tang and Song Dynasty artifacts and scroll paintings which inspired and informed this series. I also worked with a professor of Chinese art history at Rutgers (now passed sadly). I went to Zion National Park on the Utah/Arizona border over a 3 year period to shoot and then spent another year printing from early test prints to the finished gallery prints. A private foundation in Britain provided funding to make enormous prints and a wonderful space to show some of the Zion Mandalas.
