Conception of a dream, acrylics on canvas, 30″ x 40″.
I finished this painting last week and it is one of the four paintings being currently displayed at the Vibe Gallery in Bermondsey. This work took a long time to develop… started it last month (the beginning of it in my ‘Ramblings’ post) and then I let the canvas be by itself for a few weeks (meanwhile I finished another work, ‘Devi’) and when the time was right and this canvas beckoned me, I started work on it again…
Breaking away from the shackles of the mind to realize what is important to you, to desire and achieve what the heart wants, free of inhibitions… a place where you can be true and ask yourself what you really want, no manipulations, no norms of society… does a place like this exist, even if it is in your dreams?
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about…”
Rumi, 13th century poet.
