All Emanations - Pigment on canvas 84x24"
It is said that images of Buddha rain blessings on all who observe them. The Emanation series are contemporary works derived from traditional Buddhist thangkas (rolled Deity images) which are distilled down to their most elemental form – their color. The digitally scanned works are blurred, color-enhanced, stretched to seven-feet tall and printed on canvas. It is the intention – the hope – that these resulting abstract works, conceived of as representations of the light bodies of the Buddhas, maintain the lineage of their spiritual seed images and continue to rain blessings on all who observe them, Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike.
