Since the circle motive is so closely associated with the Zen painting practice, Kosho’s Enso is an obvious homage to his former teacher Seisetsu. And even the poem that Kosho places next to the circle echoes the distant sound of familiar sentences we often encounter in Zen related artefacts: “Winds chase clouds – And clouds follow the winds.”
Shimizu Kosho (1911-1999) 
Circle (Enso)
