The hazy moon of enlightenment

The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment

Piece description from the artist

What is it? A single headlight on an ancient Ford pickup rusting in the middle of an Oregon field. Look closely: you can a see a tree growing out from under the hood!

About Josh Bartok

Somerville, MA

Josh Bartok is a Buddhist priest who has been practicing Zen for the last two decades. His photographs have indirectly arisen out of his Zen meditation. His practice involves both absorbing the richness of the present and continuously opening oneself to the world. He strives to illuminate beauty in unexpected places without judgment or commentary.

Josh has been influenced by centuries of Zen artists and calligraphers, as well as abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian and Robert Motherwell. He likes to think of himself as an abstract expressionist painter who creates jointly with the universe with the guiding hand of the world.

Josh is currently based in Somerville, MA.
