The Japanese concept of “Ma” is often expressed as a pause in time, an interval or emptiness in space. In these “Ma” monotypes, I explore space in between the elements – the patterns, lines, shapes - that comprise compositions.  I share the view found in “Ma”, that visual pauses, the elements left out, are just as important as those that are expressed. The importance of the pause is found throughout human culture, in conversation, literature, music, design, architecture and other forms of expression. “Ma” is the breathing room we need…to connect.
