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.
"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
Legend tells of a giant creature with a gentle awareness that can remove obstacles that exist in your life. Surely these obstacles have been so wisely placed to motivate us to become that creature and remove the obstruction of the false self.
Beholder of many identities, daughter, wife, sister, bread-maker, mother, lover, labourer and slave, all these I am.
Ambition is as foreign to me as the people I serve. I move unseen, loving unconditionally. Although apparently bound, I am at peace, content within myself. What is freedom anyway? Beyond concepts and prejudices, I love my family, my culture and the colours of my world. I am free.
A poem written to represent 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 ?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
