THE LOTUS / HIGH VIBRATIONS EMITTER v
Acrylic / Canvas
While a lotus (also known as nelumbo) is believed to convey strength and durability by rising clean from tough mud, it is also informative of extraordinary ways of the human capability. To initiate a purification within a human and build strength however, physical needs must be met first and therefore sexual needs.
The modern human is easily lost. He or she gets consumed by myths infused in cultural history that are responsible for misrepresentations in the lotus symbolism, while he or she constantly tries to place pieces of the puzzle together in relation to understanding his or her life better. For this reason the message of a lotus is not quite understood by one who is unaware. Its rise from the mud is only because of its received nourishment from its ground resources.
The above message of the flower also bears a direct relationship to the one from ancient Indian teachings, based on earthbound pleasures. My project inscribed in this series visualizes a special lotus flower quality— its mysterious ability to make organisms around it feel high spirited and blissful through its constant discharge of indescribable vibrations.
I am a contemporary artist based in Mumbai, India. I create artwork combining photorealism with expressionism. My art spreads an awareness of the way sexuality integrates itself into the human conscience and how it plays a significant role in propelling it. It deals with human sexual instinct, its expression and its importance while redeeming the human from the oppression of conservatism.
I embrace to perpetuate the female figure into my art as my main component because female forms and shapes speak of the universal harmony I choose to represent. Often depicting her nude, I believe that recognition is only perceived and measured through the nakedness in her form.
