This series is based on the poses, symbols and philosophies of yoga. The organic lines of the body move across the page including the negative spaces created by an encircled arm or grasped foot. OM and other words are used to weave patterns across the page. Grids and geometric figures anchor the organic shapes. Moving from random placement to order, the viewer is invited to pause along this journey for contemplation.
This set is entitled “Chakras”. Chakras are wheels of energy located near the spinal cord. There are seven chakras each of which is responsible for a variety of bodily functions and emotions. For each of my pieces I have used the color associated with the chakra, the Sanskrit name, the symbol, and a yoga pose associated with the chakra.
