“The Ten Thousand Things” painting series is titled after the phrase contained within Taoist and Buddhist writings referring to the infinite diversity of the universe.

The detailed patterns found throughout this series reflect that complex yet simple diversity.

In Taoism, The Ten Thousand Things alludes to the myriad distractions that clutter our lives and cloud our thinking.

It is the realm of the mundane, the tedious, and all things that disconnect us from our higher spiritual potential.

The writings of the Tao Te Ching advise:

“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao;

The name that can be named
is not the eternal name.

The nameless is the beginning
of heaven and earth. 

The named is the mother
of ten thousand things.

The Tao generates the One.

The One generates the Two.

The Two generate the Three.

The Three generate the
ten thousand things.”

– Lao Tzu
