FOURTEENTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE

Max Gimblett continues to keep busy. Here's some of his latest activities:

LEWIS HYDE & MAX GIMBLETT
OXHERDING

JAPAN SOCIETY GALLERY, NEW YORK
OCTOBER 1, 2010 - JANUARY 16, 2011

Created by painter Max Gimblett and author Lewis Hyde, oxherding is a contemporary American version of the Ten Oxherding Pictures, a Zen parable. The original Chinese texts tell of a herder who searches for an elusive ox. Combined with images, they serve as an instructional tool, guiding Zen monks through successive stages of awareness toward enlightenment.

Gimblett is one of New Zealand’s most distinguished and honored artists, while Hyde, a MacArthur “Genius” award recipient, is celebrated for his clear-eyed perspective and intense sensitivity to the nuance and beauty of language. The two met in the early 1990s and began to work collaboratively at Gimblett’s studio in New York. Begun in 2002 and completed in 2010, oxherding consists of ten ink drawings, ten poems with prefaces, and a set of jointly produced artist books.

Hyde started by gathering existing translations of the Ten Oxherding Pictures texts and made his own first drafts, “translating from English to English.” Working with a specialist adviser, he then moved character by character through the Chinese poems until he understood how they were constructed and what they had to say. Finally he produced three English versions: a “one-word ox” (one English word per Chinese character), a “spare-sense ox” (each Chinese syntactic unit translated into a simple English sentence), and an “American ox” which takes considerable liberties while trying to be faithful to Hyde’s intuitions about the meaning of the series.

Gimblett, a Zen lay monk and student of Jungian psychology who has long viewed artistic creation as a form of meditation, brings an open mind and heart to the practice of ink drawing. Using a Chinese brush loaded with Japanese ink, he made these images rapidly, in “one breath,” working from left to right across the handmade American paper. Unlike earlier Oxherding Pictures, Gimblett’s drawings are not illustrations, but rather embodiments of his spiritual connection to the themes of the series.
