In his first solo exhibition at Kai Lin Art, Zen Buddhist Sensei Elliston Roshi creates a dynamic and transformative body of artworks through sumi ink on glass and gesso panel. Alchemy is defined as the medieval forerunner of chemistry based on the supposed transformation of matter.   With his command of materials, Roshi explores emotion and mysticism through the organic behavior of his medium and allows abstracted images to materialize through the natural processes of pigment, movement and water.  These pieces are what Roshi sees as “music for the eyes”.
