In this comprehensive retrospective of figurative and abstract paintings and drawings by Richard Stodart from 1973 to 2014, the artist pursues a line of inquiry with figure and ground as a nonduality, in and through 'someone' that mediates the relationship. In the process, the artist moves beyond the instrumental view that dichotomizes self and reality, and encounters the realizational/dynamic view in which emptiness immerses itself in thinking and meditation, differentiation and equality, delusion and enlightenment, as foci that conjoin in and through emptiness and are penetrated by emptiness.

In DreamMaking, human fallibility (amid delusion/dream) and human perfectability (beyond delusion/dream) entwine as foci of the process of calibration and the state of equilibrium. From this nondual perspective, one lives amid/beyond dream by expounding/making a dream within a dream, in and through the deconstructive/reconstructive function of emptiness, without blurring the differences between duality and nonduality.

From ancient times to the present, from Homer's Odyssey to Dereck Walcott's epic poem, Omeros, the hero journeys to faraway places in search of adventure, freedom, and wisdom, and returns home with humility to share the passion and advocacy of his quest with others.
Inspired by Dragon's Play, a Taoist transmission of nonduality by Charles Belyea and Steven Tainer, Free and Easy Wandering: Markings on the Way tells the story of a journey that begins in isolation and ends in nonduality. Twelve abstract paintings, called Markings, explore a deconstructive dynamic of autonomy, aloneness, and detachment, in and through the transformative power of emptiness.
