Art of the Moment | a short film | Haiku Review

Haiku Review Challenge

After watching the short film Art of the Moment . If you take the Challenge . Write a HAIKU REVIEW leaving your Haiku in the Comment section of this post . Express the views you feel about the ‘Moveable Painting’ [as I like to refer to GREAT short films.]

If this short film doesn’t inspire . A new short will appear next Friday in our Weekly Haiku Review.

The way I write Haiku is using the 5-7-5 syllable combination . I also often write more than one verse. It is an option . not a rule. Enjoy the fun and creativity of 1st) viewing the short film . 2nd) looking for your Haiku and creating it 3rd) sharing it if you so desire.

Here’s to the Haiku Review Challenge
Cheers! – j.kiley

Dutch painter Gert Johan Manschot reflects on his art and life.

Gert Johan Manschot is based 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.

In this short documentary Manschot describes the events that led him to turn towards the path of meditation, and how the lessons he learned helped him find a quiet harmony with life.
