Featured in Tendrel, an exhibition at the Tibet House, NYC in 2015, this project was inspired by a series of Indian paintings, Kangra, c. 18th century depicting the incarnation and dissolution of the goddess Durga after she successfully vanquishes an impossible foe. Each piece is a process of stepping into the materiality of form and dissolving back into light. Using the tension between the luminosity of saffron, and the dense materiality of handmade oak gall ink, a shifting central breathing space rises and falls- evoking the green earth our home, between dissolution and densification.
All works are mounted with biodegradable foam core and are framed in a white-painted wood frame. 10% of the proceeds will go to Dongyu Gatsal Ling Initiatives a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the education standards and living conditions of Tibetan Buddhist female monastic communities. DGLI is inspired by the mission and purposes of Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo and of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery, a model of self-sufficiency and independence for the future of female spiritual advancement.
