“Without the mud, there can be no lotus” -Thich Nhat Hanh
The Lotus Series is a mixed media project that was originally inspired by a trip to southern India in February 2020. However, the international crisis that spread so quickly into this year has made the lotus-like themes of transformation and transcendence even more resonant for me. The lotus rises slowly from the darkness at the bottom of the pond, breaking the surface to bloom in the light. These small 9×9 inch paintings are an exploration of acrylic, watercolor, ink, and collage on paper. They are mailed flat and unframed in cardboard-lined envelopes. $60 each includes shipping.
