Aashanka II



Acrylic and Gold Leaf on Canvas


We have been focused on a chakra series in Kundalini yoga, and the role emotions play in our world.  While working on our root Muladhara (मूलधारा) chakra, we meditated a great deal on the role of fear.  How it protects, inhibits, pushes, powers, paralyzes.  And that lead me here...


Childhood phobias persist, despite the rational mind. A bee is such an essential part of our ecosystem, a propagator of life, and yet, can we help but flinch when one buzzes too close?


I played with iridescent paint and black canvas for this series. Because that is the thing about fear, no? One person’s phobia may be a thing of beauty to another. Examining a fear might make you look at it as a gift. The darkness may make you appreciate the color. The tilt, the right light, it may negate the fear.
