Oil on canvas / óleo sobre tela
WORKING OUT THE INSTALLATION OF MY NEW WORK FOR MY FORTH COMING SHOW.
OIL PAINTING, OIL STARS AND WOOD BLOCK PRINT.
THIS WORK I HAD IN A SHOW THAT WENT TO VARIOUS STATES THROUGHOUT MÉXICO. ONE OF THE FIRST SHOWS I PARTICIPATED IN, SO I FELT HAPPY.
THE SHOW HAD A THEME ABOUT SEX, WHICH IS NOT EXACTLY WHAT MY WORK IS ABOUT, THOUGH IT DOES CREEP IN THERE A LITTLE, BUT VARIED READINGS OF MY WORK ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.
THE WORK IS IS TITLED “BODHICHITTA”, IT IS ONE OF SEVERAL WORKS I DID ABOUT THE IDEA.YOU CAN SEE OTHERS ON MY WEB PAGE: www.warrenhair.com If we were to ask the Buddha, “What is bodhichitta?” he might tell us that this word is easier to understand than to translate. Chitta means “mind” and also “heart” or “attitude.” Bodhi means “awake,” “enlightened,” or “completely open.” Sometimes the completely open heart and mind of bodhichitta is called the soft spot, a place as vulnerable and tender as an open wound. It is equated, in part, with our ability to love. Even the cruelest people have this soft spot. Even the most vicious animals love their offspring. As Trungpa Rinpoche put it, “Everybody loves something, even if it’s only tortillas.” EXCERPTED FROM: The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times, pages 3-4 – Pema Chödrön
THESE SMALL DRAWINGS I HAD IN A SHOW, SADLY, ONE THING LEAD TO ANOTHER AND THEY NEVER GOT RETURNED TO ME BY THE ORANIZER!
KIND OF THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO TO AN ARTIST REALLY, IS STEAL FROM THEM AND NOT PAY FOR THE WORK ( SINCE THE MAJORITY OF US NEED THE CASH TO PRODUCE MORE WORK, RIGHT? ).
LESSON LEARNT, HOWEVER! ;)
THEY WERE ALL ABOUT VISUALISING ONE’S EMOTIONS AND THE PROCESSES ATTACHED TO THOSE EMOTIONS. KIND OF A RECURRING THEM WITHIN MY WORK, INSPIRED BY A METHOD OF PSYCHOLOGY I HAD RECEIVED.
