Mantra print 3- Relief
Mantra practice, is widely adopted by many in our modern fast paced societies.
The idea behind my mantra series is for the person looking at the print and its design to notice the title of each work and then think up a personal mantra related to the title. Making these a great personal and unique gift, to give a loved one. At the same time being a great present to yourself.
This print is titled, RELIEF and means to feel reassured and comforted. My wish for you is to think about what that means to you or what that resonates with now in your life.
The designs are my own symbolic patterns I have created. Highly inspired by primitive art, ritual and symbolism throughout history and various cultures. The colours and designs are neutral and will easily fit into most interiors.
All designs and patterns drawn onto my skulls are spontaneous and come from a place of deep meditation. I wanted to transfer this mark-making practice into print form and decided to start a series of mantras. Relief is the last in my mantra series the idea behind this body of work is to practice the idea of a mantra being something you repeat and every time you look at this print you are reminded to be relieved in some way. To focus on breath and be at peace.
