Bluemehndi is a journey into the unknown realm of spirituality. 

The artwork serves as a clue, or guide to messages, ideas and concepts,

inspired by mythology and South Asian culture. 

AWAKENING - SM.jpg

"Spirituality is a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, a search for meaning in life.  As such, it is a universal human experience - something that touches us all.  People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or merely a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness. Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue while others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art or people. For me, spirituality is a conversation with self that leads to awareness of everything." J.Sol

JAI SOL ART -  Fathers Day - www.jaisolart.com

Fathers Day

Description.

 

The Mother, unconditional love and support for her baby earth. 

She will go to any lengths in this offering of herself. It is her nature to nurture. 

All while Father watches from afar, accepting, isolated by his very role.

Inspiration.

Fathers Day depicts my observations of the relationships between the child, mother and father, the most natural collaboration known. This union is at the centre of family, community and culture, continually shaping the human story on earth. However, the quality of experience and outcome are often determined by the world around it and the beliefs and behaviours of the people in it. We expect harmony between the mother and father, who are responsible for nurturing and guiding their child from birth to adulthood. We hope they are consciously aware of the impact their child will make on others and future generations. Unfortunately, nothing can determine the outcome of a child's future contributions. We cant measure their evolution, nor can we judge their development. However, we can hope the parents love and support their baby the best they can. But in reality, it's not that simple.  In many cases, there is disharmony between parents that cause challenge and detachment to this union, impacting the child, community, and invariably the wider world. This conflict between parents can result from expectations and conditions set by cultural standards and traditions or be impacted by economic and social challenges.


However, I personally feel there is a less deep-rooted reason for why our perception of the ideal family union may be conflicted.  I have witnessed a vast amount of family dynamics and relationships throughout my life and have always been curious about the father's involvement within this dynamic. Post conception, we are aware of his fundamental duties and responsibilities to mother and child but what exactly is his role beyond this? What natural qualities does he possess that can be projected and shared to optimise his growth and relationship with family?  Women are gifted by nature to support the evolution of new life and therefore are deeply connected biologically, physically and spiritually, whereas men, beyond sharing their seed, are somewhat detached from the natural experience, thus replacing a natural connection     
with a conceptual idea of connection.

Aesthetics.

Fathers day conveys my observation of aspects of this collaboration that I have often witnessed and observed mainly in rural India where culture, faith and traditions. 
The mother occupies the majority of the composition, the central figure. We see her holding the planet earth, which also represents her child. We also see a side profile of her facial expression. She is in pain, in anguish, desperately maintaining, protecting and projecting her love to baby earth. Her attire consists of colours and textures resembling plant life, elements of nature. You can see cracks and decay form in her quest.

Description.

 

It feels like magic. Just like finding love, forming friendships and support from people who have turned up to help you and you serve them. The sender is a tribute to a particular person who I believe was sent to me from a higher being.

Behind sight

What​ ​he​ ​sees,​ ​we​ ​cannot​ ​see.

What​ ​we​ ​think​ ​we​ ​see,​ ​he​ ​cannot​ ​see.

For​ ​us,​ ​he's​ ​just​ ​a​ ​man​ ​in​ ​a​ ​natural​ ​space.

But​ ​him,​ ​he​ ​is​ ​that​ ​space.

JAI SOL ART -  Sita - www.jaisolart.com

Sita

History has gifted us many epic stories that have transcended time, space and culture. Tales that are rich in detail, conveying aspects of the human experience. Ram and Sita's story from the ancient Hindu scripture, the Ramayana, is one narrative that has truly impacted the world. Prince Rama's quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana, the ten-headed demon king, with the help of an army of monkeys and their leader, Hanuman. This tale conveys the dynamic between characters in a test of loyalty, love, trust and magic.

The river of life flows vigorously through the torn heart of this land and keeps it beating.

JAI SOL ART -  Golden Moments - www.jaisolart.com

Golden Moments

Sometimes we travel to liberate ourselves from all that shines.

Sometimes we gravitate to controlled environments so that we may shine.

Some places may dim your light while others will bring you golden moments.

JAI SOL ART -  Beyond Skin - www.jaisolart.com

Beyond Skin

The​ ​world​ ​is​ ​living,​ ​breathing​ ​art.​ ​

There​ ​is​ ​no​ ​such​ ​thing​ ​as​ ​perfection.​ ​

It​ ​is​ ​the​ ​flaws​ ​that​ ​make​ ​us​ ​human.​ ​

Embrace your​ ​nature​ ​and​ ​uncover​ ​the​ ​texture.

JAI SOL ART -  Self Realisation - www.jaisolart.com

Loving you in space, in a never-ending kiss, under your gaze, I can peacefully exist.

Supernatural galactic swirls, nothing compares to this, I’m inside the outer worlds, floating in pure bliss.

JAI SOL ART -  Generations - www.jaisolart.com

Generations

Every decision we make has consequences on our reality that will run on for infinity. The question is, will we mindlessly experience reality and repeat it all over, or will we consciously generate a new reality?

JAI SOL ART -  Ritual - www.jaisolart.com

Ritual

A ritual is a sequence of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, conducted in a sequestered place, and performed in an ordered succession.

Then you do it again, just because.

JAI SOL ART -  Forgotten Day - www.jaisolart.com

Forgotten Day

I often have this dream where I float in the shadow of a golden fire in the sky, the scent of jasmine decorates the austere landscape, and I can hear sounds from history in the background. In this dream, I harbour no thought, have no desire and serve no purpose. I am as relevant as space I occupy and as open as the skies below me.

I would ask you to join me, but I can't as you are already here.

JAI SOL ART -  Super Natural - www.jaisolart.com

super natural

When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess alien powers to achieve, to alter reality to become super natural.

Momentous

 Thought is the middle man between you and life.

Now is the only opportunity to act and experience.

The only truth to ever be found is right here in this moment.

Pandevas

A​ ​poem​ ​written ​to​ re​present​ ​life​ ​starts in an ordinary place.​ ​The​ ​mother​ ​and​ ​father​ ​who​ ​birth​ ​us.​ ​The wealth and​ ​honour​ ​which attract​ ​us.​ ​Power​ ​and​ ​destruction​ ​that ​seduces ​us.​ ​Peace​ ​and​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​confuse​ ​us.​ ​Life​ ​and​ ​death to​ ​blood​ ​us.​ ​Sound familiar​ ​?

Rainbow Children

Just a​ ​handful​ ​of​ ​children​ ​can​ ​embellish ​the​ ​world​ ​with​ ​their​ ​energy.

​Their​ ​enterprise ​is​ ​greeted​ ​with​ ​love​ ​and​ ​sympathy.​ ​

They perform​ ​for​ ​us​ ​so​ ​we​ ​can​ ​perform​ ​for​ ​in return.​

​A​ ​beautiful​ ​opportunity​ ​awaits​ ​at​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​this​ ​rainbow.

Brand Baby.jpg

Brand New

Everything seems to be a brand these days. From grandmothers with logos to aunties with profiles to sisters with followers to mothers with lifestyles. What chance does a baby have when it is brand new?

God Lands

We plant the seed, we nurture the soil, we wait

GREY AREA.jpg

Grey Area

The observer’s word leaves us wondering what he saw. The observer being him,  his vision us.

SOULUTATIONSsmall.jpg

Soulutations

Adorn the doorway of your house with welcoming, inviting vibrancy. Let symbols and imagery tell the story of your open heart. No words are needed, just a peaceful smile. With graceful intent, bring the palms of your hand together and bow your head. You are fully exposed. Bask in complete uncertainty. Remain empty, remain blessed, remain welcoming.

Transend

The wounded ego often presents itself in multiple forms. These forms are all self made to feed that ego. Once the ego takes shape, it will consume the forms and transcend. 

crownseed.jpg

Crown Seed

Love is the seed, pain is the flower. Awareness the Crown.

Devadassi

The​ ​spirit​ ​moves​ ​her​ ​body​ ​in​ ​shapes​ ​and​ ​patterns​, ​conveying​ ​sacred​ ​messages​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Creator.​ ​She​ ​is​ ​lost​ ​in​ ​this world​ ​of​ ​movement​ ​and​ ​posture,​ ​drawing​ ​us​ ​in​ ​to​ ​get​ ​lost​ too. She​ ​has​ ​no​ ​mind,​ ​body​ ​or​ ​soul;​ ​she​ ​is​ ​a​ ​living​ ​ghost,​ ​a​ ​vessel​ ​for​ ​God.​ ​

She​ ​is​ ​Devadassi.

SELF ETHIC2.jpg

Self Ethic

Now we are beyond survival, pleasure and pain are mere options.

Chackra

Our​ ​bodies​ ​mirror​ ​the​ ​universe,​ ​organically​ ​connected​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Maya​ ​Chakras.​ The​ ​spinning​ ​of​ ​these​ ​wheels​ ​shapes who​ ​we​ ​are​ ​and​ ​brings​ ​together​ ​a​ ​union​ ​of​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​colour.

the stone council.jpg

Stone Council

Seeking​ ​council​ ​from​ ​stone​ ​gods,​ ​I​ ​renounce​ ​all​ ​responsibility.​ ​

To​ ​no​ ​avail.​ ​I​ ​can​ ​now​ ​see​ ​that​ ​the​ ​answer​ ​is​ ​not​ ​in the​ ​question​ ​but​ ​in​ ​the​ ​one​ ​who​ ​asks.​

​I​ ​am​ ​my​ ​own​ ​council.

Gold Rush

He​ ​runs,​ ​young​ ​and​ ​free​,​ ​towards​ ​the​ ​golden​ ​city.​ ​With​ ​every​ ​spin,​ ​his​ ​shadow​ ​grows,​ ​his​ ​true​ ​nature​ ​lessens​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fading​ ​light.​ He​ ​will​ ​grow​ ​to​ ​leave​ ​this​ ​moment​ ​behind,​ ​caught​ ​in​ ​the​ ​heat​ ​of​ ​the gold​ ​rush.​ ​Spinning​ ​out​ ​of​ ​control​ ​as​ ​the​ ​sun sets​ ​on​ ​his​ ​innocence.

ORG FLO EDITED - SITE.jpg

Antiquity

The ancient past, especially the period of classical and other human civilizations before the Middle Ages.

surya's pot.jpg

Surya's Pot

To create anything in life, one must get a bit broken first. Only then one can let the beauty pour out, to share. If we fear creation, we may die of thirst, no love. If we allow the water or love to flow freely, we may manifest life in the lifeless. ​Surya was in search of water and disappeared in the heart of Rajasthan. Today, she appears as a myth, a ghost.

fv2.jpg

Face Value

On the surface, the world becomes visible in behaviour, movement and growth. Under the surface, the world is invisible in thoughts, stillness and vanishing. What we see we value and what we don't see, we face. There is no hiding place.

Colour Monsoon

The​ ​season​ ​before​ ​last​ ​was​ ​full​ ​of​ ​possibility.​ ​The​ ​following​ ​season​ ​brought​ ​new​ ​possibilities.​​ This​ ​season​ ​is impossible​ ​to​ ​predict​ ​because​ ​now,​ ​everything​ ​is​ ​possible.
​​​​Prepare​ ​for​ ​the​ ​REIGN.

blond-durga.jpg

Blonde Durga

She​ ​is​ ​known​ ​as​ ​Durga.​ ​

She​ ​captured​ ​the​ ​imagination​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world​ ​and​ ​we​ ​are​ ​intrigued​ ​by​ ​her​ ​dominance​ ​and power.​ ​

We​ ​are​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​her​ ​character​ ​and​ ​fire.​ ​

We​ ​elevate​ ​ourselves​ ​in​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​capture​ ​her​ ​essence,​ ​not​ ​knowing she’s​ ​beyond​ ​all​ ​desire.

INVISIBLE EMPIRE.jpg

Invisible Empire

They govern the past to help us. 

They destroy the reputation of others to protect us.

Yet they work for those who aren’t us.

Butterfly Love

As a child, I did not know what tomorrow was, then overnight. I became an expert. I soon visualised years and even lifetimes. This was fun in the beginning but soon became troublesome as I no longer was inside today. Now I have no life beyond this moment.

My only reality is the butterfly, my imagination.

SHAPESHIFT_edited.jpg

Shapeshift

As I leave my home as a free spirit, I become a hunter and the hunted. If I catch my prey, I am rewarded with another day.  If I am caught, I may never see any day. If I am not captured or have captured, I will shapeshift until I arrive back home. My third eye is always wide open, and so my spirit can only lead me to freedom.

There is a glory in Madness only known to Madmen.

Royal Youth

There will be a city with streets of gold.
The young so educated they never grow old.
They ascend to the heavens on the day of judgment,  
when God and his creators lose their control.

Godshop

They begin in a workshop, figures of humans in ceramic moulds. They are painted and decorated to look like Gods. They are worshiped and adored like they are Gods. The market is open for those who want to see and feel their beliefs.

Spiritual Conception

At what stage does the mother's spirit influence the unborn child?  At what stage does the father's character inspire the unborn child? The stage is set for the child to answer the questions and accept that neither may happen.   

RESTLESS BEINGS.jpg

Restless Beings

Children in Bangladesh are feeling restless. Their childhood is stolen by adults who abuse their young lives. Their days are spent fighting hunger and fear. Every hour is consumed by false hope and dread. Every minute is filled with anxiety and danger, and every second they imagine being you.  

OK

We are so involved with everything outside of our control, understanding and even experience. Our desire to want to know or be apart of something beyond us is natural. The need to contribute or attain validation can dominate our actions and thoughts, resulting in further deficits in our understanding of self and the world.

​But no thing is actually outside of us, both physically and mentally.

We experience the world entirely through our body. 

The outside only exists when you think of it, imagine it and feel a sense of it.

​The inside is all that is alive, and the outside is a response to other life.

 

Everything and NO THING is OK.

This unique version features iconic movie characters from India’s magical film industry.

Organisation

His purpose, to protect his angel from her demons.
Her ambition, to protect her saviour from his demons.
Together, they protect the demon.
 
The magic circle is a modern take on the oldest tale written—the invisible force field created by Ram to protect Sita from the ultimate demon. 

SHADOWMAN.jpg

Shadowman

He sits under the tree of Wisdom.

In his stillness, he observes the whole universe.

He questions his form, his idea of self on earth.

And yet, the world is being blinded by his shadow.

AURA-.jpg

Aura

I find movement in nature, in the sun, in the rain. I discover my nature in the sea, in the stars.
I am at peace with gods gifts and in love with all around me. A storm may come, the earth may shake, and the skies may fall, but I promise I'm not hiding anything. I am water, and we are water, pure as water.

Organic flo.png

Organic Flo

Nature gives abundantly, and our senses allow us to savour this rainbow. Colour is flowing all around us. Magic ingredients mix into a vast array of flavours, the organic landscape of greens and reds and spectacular browns. Stones replace seeds, and pixels replace pigments, and appetites replace appreciation.Deep within this landscape, we stand and taste the flow.

Shakti

And now we must band together, form a union that will last eternally in the minds and hearts of us.

Sindur

When it comes to meditation, I avoid all forms of contrast.

In this place of emptiness, there is no room for two.

However, outside there is always room for the ultimate difference.
