The ensō symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void). It is characterised by a minimalism born of Japanese aesthetics. In Zen Buddhism, an ensō (円相 ) is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The circle may be open or closed. In the case the circle is incomplete, allowing for movement and development as well as the perfection of all things. It is related to wabi-sabi, the beauty of imperfection. Jeroen De Wandel tries to communicate with the spectator through the combination of images; the poetry without words that entices phantasy and makes the spectator travel in his/her own mind to experiences he/she had in his/her past. In that way, through the images, he tries to communicate from one’s mind to another, through his own visual world, without underestimating the spectator's imagination in this world of often superficial, concrete images. He always starts from his personal interests/ideas/inner circle, alienation,.. and photographs things/people/... where he feels connected to at a certain moment in time, which results in sometimes abstracted, very tactile images, always with a touch of reality in it.
