Samsara – The Cosmic Tree
69″ x 65″
Gel, Oils, Acrylic, Gold foil, pigments and inks on canvas.
The several layers behind the upside down tree represent various realms of existence. When viewed from 14 feet away (or more), the “worlds” each show a horizon and depth. The heavy texture on the tree was intentionally added to draw the eye back to center.The gold streak draws the eye upwards to the root system or the Realm of Truth.
Gold foil on the lettering highlight the words from the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 15 ( 1 to 4). These poems were the inspiration.
