Tibetan Scriptures, raw pigments, and acrylic on canvas
Through brilliant coulours applied with large and generous brush strokes, these paintings show Buddhas sitting in the lotus position and contemplating the endless movement of the infinite sky. They are focused on their centerless center, the pure Space and Light. In the same way, when our Self is merged into Nature we can perceive the true nature of Space. Being into Nature brings out our naturalness, purifing our mind and starting the process of clearing out the source of sufference from its root: the wrong view coming from ignorance. Losing the ties of Samsara, we can free ourselves and reach the Nirvana.
