In early August, Scott Crosby reflected on the practice of balance in both American and Chinese landscape paintings. Drawing out how two different times, cultures, and styles share a similar human longing. Balance as a practice rather than the subject resonates in my own studio where I’ve largely spent time wrestling with the tension of un-balancing grids. This week I’d like to share a selection of artworks by CIVA artists who draw out many sides of balance. I hope you will allow these images to soak your experience with wisdom that is better than gold (Proverbs 16:6).
