“We are not afraid of the void” because the void is not empty. For a fervent Zen adept like Honegger, this statement is not paradoxical. In his artistic pursuit of the metaphysical absolute, the painter, who compares art to an “oasis of peace, reflection and meditation”, applies the precept to his immense monochrome works covered in intertwining white chalk lines and curves. These canvasses do not depict the void, but the fullness of the void.
