The Zen Master's Taboo - Rohan Wealleans
27 May - 21 July 2022
Gallery 2, Percy Thomson Gallery

Artist Statement

What is the Zen Master's Taboo? This is a question the candles might be asking ... "Who knows? In fact, Who really cares?," says the Zen Master. The candles are an exploration in matter and function. A candle must burn. A painting and sculpture can burn but it is not usually designed to do so. 


You do the maths.
