Ganesha :Painting One
Ganesha :Painting One

All religions have a similar purpose of using stories or figures to bring attention to questions of morality and truth. To do a moving meditation (in my case painting) to these stories have been a deeply healing practice for me. This painting is created as a dedication to Ganesha, remover of obstacles.

This painting incorporates metallic paint. As the viewer moves the metallic paint dances across the canvas, revealing and hiding different attributes of Ganesha.

"Ganesha is one of the most distinctive Hindu deities with his large elephant head and pot-bellied human body. He plays a dual role of a supreme being powerful enough to remove obstacles and ensure success or create obstructions for those whose ambition has become destructive." - The Chopra Center
