This painting began as a freeform abstract which became a painted rendition of Buddha reclining. I didn't begin with the idea of this painting - it started out as an abstract and then I added a foreground to create a plane for a landscape and added a sun in the sky. There is a buddha reclining figure in my studio and I thought " I will paint that into the picture and see what happens. " This is the second painting actually, the first is the other Buddha reclining painting. You can see how they are different. I like Buddha and his teachings and philosophy so that is why I made the subject for this painting. Thank you for looking and although it is a little different from traditional renditions I hope you like it.
My name is Robert Nasatka and I am a NY artist living in the Hamptons. I am classically trained in Sculpture and Painting at Boston University, where I graduated Cum Laud, Fine Arts in 1997. I have been in over 50 exhibitions including @ American University, The Parrish Art Museum, Suffolk Community College, Fitchburg Art Museum, Tanglewood Institute, The Boy's Club, and many galleries. I was also runner up in Swatch Watches artist design series and a finalist in H&M's NYC Window Competition. I also have several pieces in Museum collections and have collaborated with famous artists and designers, including work shown in Hamptons Style and Instyle Magazines. .I don't make or market one specific type of work and some of my work is highly experimental and ephemeral and blurs the line between concept and reality. Since becoming a father I have been dedicating more time to market friendly and design based art and concepts as well as custom jewelry, but still like to paint and see what happens. Thank you for your interest.
