  • Gutai A

    rt does not alter the material.

    Gutai A

    rt imparts life to the m

    aterial. G

    utai Art does not distort the m

    aterial. In G

    utai Art, the hum

    an spirit and the m

    aterial shake hands with each other but

    keep their distance. The material never

    comprom

    ises itself with the spirit; the

    spirit never dominates the m

    aterial. W

    hen the material rem

    ains intact and exposes its characteritics, it starts telling a story, and even cries out. To m

    ake the fullest use of the m

    aterial is to make use

    of the spirit. By enhancing the spirit, the

    material is brought to the height of the

    spirits.

    The Bodhi (True Wisdom

    ) is not like the tree; The m

    irror bright is nowhere shining; As there is nothing from

    the first, W

    here does the dust itself collect? - Huineng (638-713)

    The body is the Bodhi tree; The soul is like the m

    irror bright, Take heed to keep it always clean, And let no dust collect upon it.

    - Yuquan Shenxiu (606?706)
