“The 10OX series offers a modern visual interpretation of the Zen story Ten Ox Herding Pictures, which describes the path of enlightenment. As a series, they reach beyond the component paintings to guide the viewer along a path of transformation and transcendence. This theme is presented most palpably through color, wherein black-brown represents the bull-mind (ego/hero) of this ancient archetypal story, beginning with a call to adventure, apexing in revelation, and ending in the return to home.” — Kimmy Quillin
Kimmy Quillin (b. 1983) is a painter who draws from symbolic color and narrative in her abstractions. Her works are partially informed by her visual experience of the world unaided by corrective lenses - after she ran out of contacts in 2008, she discovered a preference for her less-than-20/20 vision of the world. This color field reality is reflected in her painting. Quillin currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
