The two paintings are titled “Meditation I and II (bigger one).It came out of my inspiration and my hope for more interfaith relations between people.
As a Christian, I hope to reach out to my Buddhist friends through these artworks…
I got involved in this project (which I created myself) because I believe this is what interfaith is all about- not just sitting in meetings and dialogues, and ending up fighting against each other after that!
The two women represent all inner souls who long for peace in a very uncertain and fast changing, confused but colorful world. These kind of souls meditate to achieve their dreams and desires for peace even in the midst of so much storm or chaos (or happenings reflected by the moving colors around the women meditating).
Storms are not always bad or dark, and as we meditate, we can embrace all the positive energies and world views around us. The colorful or yellow dotted circles at the centre of the women’s bodies reflect inter-connectivity of our souls and nature (surrounding) and also universality of feelings and thought with our inner self and also with others.
Ps. The two paintings have been donated to a Buddhist group to raise funds for the needy. I wish my friends involved in this project only the very best. Peace.
