For decades I painted representational works under the name of Eric Angeloch.  I became successful with the traditional landscape genre. Recently, I revisited my initial exploration creating visual art. I wanted to achieve a harmonious balance of representation and pure non-objective abstraction. This was not an easy task.

Over time I became acquainted with various philosophical teachings from the East and wished to incorporate this ideology into my work.

I use the pseudonym Ishi for these paintings. I feel it reflects not only the stylistic change but also the difference in thought.

These paintings are the result.

The upper portion of the paintings generally are seen as a state of pure, flat color which  represents the philosophy of Mushin (Japanese mushin; English translation "no mind"). The term is shortened from mushin no shin, a Zen expression meaning the mind without mind and is also referred to as the state of no-mindness. That is, a mind not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion and thus open to everything.

To rely not on what one thinks, but what is felt intuitively.
