Sandy Walker's work "Untitled" (2001, graphite on paper, 38" x 25.5") recently appeared in the Spring 2002 issue of the magazine Inquiring Mind, a semiannual journal of the Vipassana community. The issue is devoted to "Revealing the Vision: Art & Dharma".

Sandy's work appears as an illustration accompanying an article "Zen and Improvisational Dance," by dancer and choreographer, Ellen Webb. This is the latest in a long history of collaboration between the husband and wife, including Mountain, Tree, Water, which won an Isadora Duncan Dance Award in 1989.

world trade center, poster October 1, 2001

This poster was created as a memorial to the tragic losses in New York City on September 11. In the early 80's, I lived in the shadow of the World Trade Center and made many drawings there. Before that, I lived on 8th Avenue, where I looked down the avenue from my window to the two towers that I always referred to as the twin peaks.

The poster is being distributed free of charge, and I am leaving stacks in various locations. Anyone with an interest in obtaining a copy may contact me by e-mail. If I ship it, I will ask to be remibursed for the shipping costs.

Life is a confluence of integration and disintegration. My work is an effort to capture a brief moment of balance in the constant shifting of our lives and consciousness.

For a moment we embraced the towers. Now they are gone.

Sandy Walker
