Dutch painter, Gert Johan Manschot, paints from his hill country studio outside of Austin, Texas.

 

His paintings are born from a period of deep contemplative meditation in front of the canvas.  

 

As a lifelong meditator and student of Zen Buddhism, Manschot has interwoven the process of his work with his practice of meditation.

 

The resulting work are paintings informed by the ancient style and formal techniques of Zen Buddhist monks but with the extreme personal quality of contemporary minimalist abstract art.
