Artwork Description

Mixed Media on paper

Signed certificate of authenticity.

This work is part of a series called 'Uncontained Vessels' where I adopted the simple shape of a vessel as a metaphor for the human form. This work explores the experience of form (body, thoughts and emotions) and formlessness (silence, stillness and spaciousness) experienced during my morning meditations and contemplations.

One of the great influences on my work is the book 'Tantra Song' by Franck Andre Jamme, who first exhibited a small selection of Indian sacred works on paper in Paris in 1994. These works were originally produced by Tantric families from Rajasthan for meditation and visualisation where they are left unframed and simply pinned to the walls, usually in a special or "sacred" place in the house. Eventually the piece is discarded or replaced with a new artwork. There is a lovely quality of non-attachment and impermanence to this story which resonates with me.

This work on paper is listed unframed, however please let me know if you would like a quote for framing. I have a wonderful local framer that offers options with our without glass, and ready to hang. I feel this piece would look beautiful in the simplicity of a white or natural light timber frame. The work is on Canson 290 gsm, weighty, mould resistant, professional art paper.

Thank you for taking the time to view my art. Mx
