Atmospheric mists, luminous reflections surround emerging structures that evoke shrine, cage, and the rickety sometimes graceful dwelling that we live in.
The works were created using watercolor and a dye made from various flowers given to me during an abhishek ceremony in Alandi, India. at the shrine of the 13th century saint Jnaneshwar Maharaj in 2010. The flower offerings were made by thousands of pilgrims, some who walked hundreds of miles to offer their devotion. The paintings came out of several months of work back in my Lower East Side studio, sifting through memories and impressions.
