About The Artwork

This painting is inspired by the Hindu deity Brahma. Brahma is the source, as well as, the progenitor of creation and all creative activity in the Universe. As such, he is worshipped by the craftsmen and business class of the Indian caste system. After watching a series of J. Krishnamurti's interviews and lectures relating to art, freedom, and creativity, I was driven towards creating this piece. The colors in this piece have a manifold purpose, from aesthetic arrangements to symbolic references to the Hindu chakra system, as well as the limitless blue sky where Brahman resides, and the orange-golden halo which serves as a beacon of his spiritual reverence. I used etching and scratching the paper surface to eliminate some the pastel colors, creating an abstract expressionist feel to an otherwise rigid religious portrait of a deity.

I find the visionary works of classical masters of the Renaissance and Baroque Era as major influences for my artistic style, mannerism, and subject matter. I am constantly fascinated by the use of coded language and symbolism in art and painting to communicate complicated concepts, ideologies, emotions, and mythology (Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Tibetan, Hindu). I believe that the divine speaks to us in metaphors, and as such, find refuge in expressing my understanding and experiences of the divine through symbolism. Although the subject matter of my works does not abide by reality and the laws of physics, my style in rendering is nevertheless grounded in realistic figuration, much like the surrealists and visionary artists of the past. I initiate my artistic endeavors with an instinctive urge to express intricate spiritual subjects with their underlying concepts and emotions according to my perception and understanding of reality, and layer my work with realistic depictions of the protagonists and the surreal mythical atmosphere to render it more comprehensible. I do not restrict my palette to a specific range of colors, as life is limitless, and art is an immaculate reflection of life through an individualized lens. My works are evidences of cathartic experimentation. I specifically enjoy ornamental symbols and patterns introduced in the works of the great masters, and as such, have discovered an interesting use of the 7th letter of the Armenian alphabet “Է” in my works.
