Buddha Mind in Contemporary Art edited by Jacquelynn Baas and Mary Jane Jacob [in AsianWeek]

Buddha MindOh, Asian influences are everywhere we look … and becoming endlessly more visible – or, in this case, more visual. The influences of Buddhist teachings and perspectives are the common thread through this hybrid collection of academic essays, diverse commentary, artistic statements, and interviews with working artists. It’s even PC – check out the bottom of page 49: “… I knew enough of Oriental thought – that adjective was not yet on the index of culturally unrecommended expressions …” Had to chuckle.
