A MAGAZINE OF ZEN AND THE ARTS

Artist’s note: Lava is its own lesson.  Fires from the furnace burst into an atmosphere that cools the liquid stone, then flows over and around it, simultaneously destroying and creating.  This is the image of Red Doors.

Here, the title is an element of the painting as koan, not just a frame.
