Comment
ミニマルでありながら複合的なイメージの内在を包含する彼の作品は、常により簡潔でシンプルなプロセスに基づいて制作される。このダブルバインド的な姿勢は、日本の禅思想に深く影響を受けたものである。日常生活においても日本文化に親しみ、そのエッセンスを取り込む彼ならではのアプローチである。

Walter Jule’s images have an inherent minimalism yet a complex nature to them, which derives from deep influences of Zen philosophy. His creative process is fastidiously clean and simple, an approach influenced by Japanese culture and way of life, which he admires and also practices in his day-to-day life.
