Know all things to be like this:

A mirage, a cloud castle,

A dream, an apparition,

Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.


Know all things to be like this:

As a magician makes illusions

Of horses, oxen, carts and other things,

Nothing is at it appears.



This quote from the Buddha articulates the underlying tenant of George Blaha’s work. He expresses this idea metaphorically through drawings, paintings, and sculptures created with 2 and 3-D software. The digital process allows him to explore and blur the boundaries between art and craft, the documentation of an object and the object itself, the unique and the massproduced, the real and the virtual.
