About The Artwork

Lord Ganesha is a wonderful symbol of hope. Worshipped as the God of wisdom, he is a symbol of prosperity, happiness and knowledge. He is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. I have chosen a Lotus flower (padma) for his crown which is a symbol of purity/transcendence. In his right lower palm, there is an Om (Aum) symbol with a unalome (Hindu symbol of Shiva's 3rd eye meaning wisdom and the path to perfection. Om/pranava, is thought to contain all things, waking/dreaming/deep sleep, the fourth state which is the awareness of one's own spiritual identity. I chose 17 Mukhi Rudraksha in his bottom left hand because I am left handed and was born in January. Saturn is my personal ruling planet. The wearer of 17 Mukhi Rudrasha is blessed with fortune and wealth. In his top right hand, he has a "Parashu" which is the Sanskrit word for battle-axe which can be wielded with one or both hands. With this axe, Lord Ganesha can both strike and repel obstacles. The hamsa on his trunk is the open right hand, a sign of protection which provides defense against the evil eye. The two tusks denote the two aspects of the human personality, wisdom and emotion. I chose a 3 dimensional sri yantra between his eyes. The Shri Yantra is a form of mystical diagram (yantra) used in the Shri Vidya school of Hinduism. It consists of nine interlocking triangles that surround a central point known as a bindu. These triangles represent the cosmos and the human body. Because of its nine triangles, Shri Yantra is also known as the Navayoni Chakra. When the two-dimensional Shri Yantra is represented in three dimensions, it is called a Mahameru. Mount Meru derives its name from this shape. In addition to Mount Meru, all other yantras derive from the Shri Yantra. The four arms of Lord Ganesha represent the four inner attributes: mind (Manas), intellect (Buddhi), ego (Ahamkara), and conditioned conscience (Chitta).

I have a profound respect for artistic transcendence through mythology. My art is representative of many different religious symbols, mostly gods and images considered to be sacred. Inspired by books, my personal life, spiritual symbols and their dimensionality, and histories, I paint the emotions they invoke in me. I am heavily influenced by philosophy, Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, sacred geometry, Egyptian history, Hinduism, and Buddhist images. My style is perfectly imperfect, wabi sabi. Perfection is a fleeting goal and for me and painting has been a journey into acceptance of myself imperfect, as is. As a lover of architecture, balance and polarity, sacred geometry speaks to my soul. History and world religions are interwoven themes throughout all of these pieces.
