Akanda-mandalakaram (“Endless circle”, in sanskrit) is a 2019 series dedicated to my teachers in the spiritual paths of both Vedanta and Buddhism.
Most of the pieces were created and painted in India.
The images make references to Buddhist and Vedantic iconography. The infinite circle (enso), for example, is associated to the empty, non-conceptual nature of the liberated mind, while the elephant is related both to the birth of Buddha (as prince Siddharta) and the god Ganesha.
Gouache, watercolor and Indian ink; 2019.
Limited numbered and signed fine prints (size 30X30cm) available upon request here.
