Ready to Hang
A Zen verse says, "May we exist in muddy water with purity, like a lotus." Lotus flower rises from muddy waters and is clean and fragrant. The mud nourishing the roots represents our human lives. It is within our human experiences and our suffering that we seek to break free and bloom. But while the flower rises above the mud, the roots and stem remain in the mud, where we live our lives.
This painting is done on paper using artist grade metallic inks. It is matted and framed in black sleek metal frame and ready to be hanged.
Blending modernity with tradition and giving it life by color is the basis of my technique - one drop at a time, simple lines and fluid dynamics. With no formal education in arts, I experiment a lot and my goal is to create unique, one of a kind art.
