Mixed Media - Screenprint On Hand Painted Background
"Namaste" is a Hindi word of greeting, respect and hospitality used in many parts of the world. Literally, it means "I bow to you", and it is often accompanied by ańjali mudrā, a brief bow made with palms pressed together before the heart.
For many, it has a deeper meaning along the lines of "I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me", acknowledging the notion that the Divine resides in - and connects - all of us.
This design features a reflectograph* of the word “namaste”, framed by a figure preforming ańjali mudrā, a winged heart and lotus flowers.
This piece makes a wonderful gift for someone you greatly respect, and is especially suited to hang near the entrance of your home to welcome guests.
*Reflectographs are something I came up with while working with reflective symmetry. I wanted to integrate words into my artwork in a way that almost disguised them as pure design, but was still recognizable as writing. By orienting a word vertically and reflecting it, I got the effect I was going for. At first glance, it may appear to be just an abstract design of lines and curves, but upon closer inspection, the letters (and the meaning) can be discerned.
