Wheel of Life
Explores the spirit and looking within, with the Buddhist Wheel of Life as a starting point.
The titles derive from its six realms of existence. In some pieces you find the suggestion of the attribute of the boddhisattva (a symbol of compassion) associated with each realm. For example, in the Hell Realm the attribute of the boddhisattva is the mirror. Whereas the Wheel symbolizes the need for gaining personal insight, the references to DNA and genome sequencing serve here as a metaphor for the hand we are dealt at birth.
All of this personal appropriation notwithstanding, I hope the spirit of the subject is sufficiently conveyed though color, light, and arrangement.
