Painting Enlightenment: The Art and Science of the Heart Sutra with Dr. Paula Arai

Crow Collection of Asian Art
2010 Flora St.,
Dallas, Texas, USA
Mar 25, 2017


Detail: Japanese biologist and visionary artist Iwasaki Tsuneo (1917-2002) painted the harmony he discovered between scientific and Buddhist views of reality. Expressing the interdependent, impermanent, and empty nature of phenomena, he shaped the words of the Heart Sutra––a scripture prized for its concise expression of wisdom and compassion––into imagery drawn from ephemeral beauties of nature, Buddhist culture, and telescopic wonders. Enjoy a lecture by a curator of the exhibition, Wisdom of Compassion: The Art and Science of Iwasaki Tsuneo (1917-2002), Dr. Paula Arai, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Louisiana State University.
