This visually and intellectually stimulating presentation explores how the Japanese aesthetic concept of “ma” (gap or “void”) has universal application that can help shed new light on the emotive power of some of the most moving works of Western art—beginning with classical antiquity and continuing into the present. We will consider art in the classical sense of the term to include not just painting and other two-dimensional works but also sculpture and architecture.

Scott Mason

Scott Mason’s knowledge of Japanese aesthetics began with his involvement in haiku as a poet (winner of more than two dozen international competitions), journal editor, and author. His book The Wonder Code: Discover the Way of Haiku and See the World with New Eyes was named one of the “Best 100 Indie Books of 2019” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on the board of The Haiku Foundation. Scott’s passion for art goes back even further: to his college days when it was his undergraduate major. In the decades since, Scott has visited countless museums, churches and other places of great art worldwide.
