With Kathy Barr, cook, writer, book artist and friend, I began a collaboration inspired by a Zen text, Instructions for the Tenzo. In reading this text I began to think of mindfulness not only in cooking and food preparation but also in eating. From this dialogue the drawings “Mindful Eating…or Not” began. It is a challenge to see how much gesture can be captured with the minimum of stroke, a few ovals, a couple of lines and simple materials. The project became mindful drawing about mindful eating...or not.
