A Space Between Thoughts
Limited Edition Print by Mike Heseltine. Framed in Oak.

A Limited Edition signed print produced on A3 40 gms hand made paper (image size is 30cm by 22.5cm) and framed in an oak frame plus mount. The paper is from Nepal and is the inner bark of the Lokta bush. Each print is signed by the artist and the print run is limited to 1000. As the paper is hand made, each print is unique and will have different textures and marks produced by the paper. Please note that colours on screen may be slightly different from the original.

This charcoal drawing was inspired when an owl hovered above me one summer evening in Scotland. For a few brief moments, the usual chatter in my mind and the constant stream of thoughts stopped. This was a space between the thoughts which made me aware of only the present. Without being troubled or distracted by thoughts of the future or past, my mind settled into a stillness where a new awareness developed. An awareness that requires no thought but just an acceptance of what is. Within this acceptance, I felt an overwhelming appreciation of nature and life.

The drawing is a development of the Zen Buddhist ideas and the stillness felt in my drawing Lost in Past and Future. The thoughts, through meditation, have finally been let go, leaving a state of nothingness where deep awareness can be experienced. The drawing shows thoughts, past and future, being separate from the figure. Without these thoughts and marks, the figure is less defined and the mind melts into the colours and textures that represent the space around the figure. In other words, the ego and its identity with self is lost. Everything is now understood to be fully connected.

Nothingness - Lao Tzu

We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel

But it is on the spaces of the nave

where there is nothing

that the usefulness of the wheel depends.
