Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Gu Shab is a new painting from my 'Rinchen' series. This series is named in respect of Tibetan Buddhist culture. I’ve long felt a connection with, and curiosity for, Tibet. The resilience of it's people, who continue to practice compassion and acceptance in the face of unspeakable devastation to their homeland and culture, has been an inspiration to me since I was in my early 20s.

Buddhist teachings continue to influence my art practice, if only as a reminder to be present, where I can feel creativity flowing freely, where I create my best work, or maybe work that’s a reflection of my best self, my best energy.

Buddhism and Tibetan culture emphasise the importance of laughter and joy which reminds me to paint with a light heart. Tibetan language proved a little difficult to source so these latest paintings are named with the help of Jennifer (Choekyi) a buddhist nun, now living in Australia. Jen runs the Tibetan Emporium in Buxton NSW. Gu Shab means respect.

With limited knowledge, this is my homage to Tibetan language, some say a dying language. Given their circumstances this sadly seems inevitable. If my paintings exist for a very long time, then they will carry a part of Tibetan culture with them into the future, to share with others.

Gu Shab is painted on stretched canvas with 3.8cm sides so it's ready to hang.

Please note all images are taken before lacquering (to reduce reflection). Paintings are then finished in two coats of a satin lacquer for protection and longevity.
