Ekaksara Masterpiece Works 

These exclusive collections consist of large scale masterpiece bodies of art, continuing on the explorations from the previous series. Their inspiration is the pinnacle of the creative journey through the previous series and collections. The spectrum of luminosity, colour saturation, opalescence, and other properties of mineral pigments when used in conjunction with oil pigments are exemplified. The works are very heavily embedded with the highest grade gemstones. Mathematical concepts as expressed in the Vedas, the Kabbalah, and the Fibbonacci Sequence are incorporated. 

These works will contain the highest grade of minerals, gemstones, and workmanship... thus embodying the accumulation of knowledge, experience, and creative growth of the artist. These works will be exclusively available to select collectors as the final masterpiece edition in the lineage of this series, created by the artist in her lifetime.


Several prominent collections are courting the exclusive ownership of these works. 

Akasa studies and Series I 


These studies explore the abstract landscape, colour theory, and mathematical formulas in art. The works were created from 2000 to about 2006.


This series consists of the Akasa works on paper, pastel and minerals on paper, 1 to 100 and Akasa studies on canvas, oil and minerals on canvas, 10 x 10 inches, 1 to 101 

Akasa Series



Works:

In these works, the light spectrum is explored through naturally florescent, phosphorescent, and luminous inclination of the mineral and gemstone pigments. This medium also has unique physical properties resulting in an amazing spectrum and interplay of colour above and beyond cadmium pigments. Physically, the works' surface consists of pigments from natural minerals that react with natural light (or the absence of) in interesting ways; they are experiments within the realm of creating/reacting to natural light. Gem embellishment create another dimensional layer to an already richly textured, reflective, and refractive surface.  Aesthetic studies involve florescence, phosphorescence, colour theory, and colour relativity.

The technique of application is similar to pointillism; well known artists of this style include France’s Seurat and the more contemporary abstract expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart. Colour theory is also explored further Each stipple is approximately 1-5 mm. The gemstone embellishment of creative works is an age old tradition that has survived and developed through Man's history and cultures, from the first civilizations of Mesopotamia to today. More recent influences include the French Cloisonné movement. The mineral pigments are treated in the ancient Japanese technique of Nihonga as well, using pigments derived from precious and semiprecious stones. Contemporaries of this technique include Hiroshi Senju, Chen Wenguang, and Makoto Fujimara.



Concept:

Ekaksara, Akasa: "The One manifests as the many, the formless putting on forms."(Rig Veda) 


The many aspects of Numerology are considered when each piece is made. Numerology, drawn from various traditions such as the Kabbalah, the I Ching, and the Vedas, converge to have similar representations and "powers" within the number systems. Numerology is incorporated in each work to encourage a Natural aesthetic harmony intrinsic to this series. 


The ideas, concerns, and themes for this series have a conceptual leaning. These works are a visual meditation on the Vedic concepts of Creation. They explore the elements of Space and Light.


Space can first be considered as looking at the same phenomenon from two different angles. The first, which is always introduced by the compound word, Akasa-Dhatu (space-element) means Space as a physical void region or as that which delineates material phenomena (like a room). The second is introduced by the term, Akasa (space). It means Space as a phenomenon for the existence and movement of matter (like a womb, or a pause in thought). In physical existence, these dualities merge. They are two codependent perspectives of the same reality. Ekaksara is the actual state of occurrence of this phenomenon.


Through Ekaksara, moves the Omnipresent rhythm of the universe. It is the presence of Ekaksara that makes multitude and multiplicity possible. Therfor, it is the source of the entire cosmos.


The Bindu, or point of creation, is viewed as one and yet infinite. Through these "Bindus" of light, colour, and iridescence, a work of art comes together. The works are a physical meditation on the notions of Ekaksara and Akasa: of Space and Light in its purest form as it precedes the moment of Creation. 

On the canvas, the stabs of paint congregate initially to create a space of communion. Through rhythm and repetition, they gain presence and loose form as they merge together. The image can be an abstraction of space: space between raindrops, waves in an ocean, night and day, life and death, each thought, the bardo state, or of meditation. It is also a motion. This movement is the essence of creation, the emergence of light and dust. The transition of light can be likened to shifts occurring in these spaces, to a shift of consciousness. 

Akasa Series III 

This series consists of large scale works, continuing on the explorations from the previous series. The spectrum of luminosity, colour saturation, opalescence, and other properties of mineral pigments when used in conjunction with oil pigments are exemplified. The works are heavily embedded with gemstones. Mathematical concepts as expressed in the Vedas, the Kabbalah, and the Fibbonacci Sequence are incorporated. 


Each work is 5 x 5 ft square. The creation of this 33 work series commenced in 2012 and continues to today. 

Akasa Series II


This series consists of panel studies that explore the vast spectrum of luminosity, colour saturation, opalescence, and other properties of mineral pigments when used in conjunction with oil pigments. The works are embedded with gemstones. Mathematical concepts are also further explored. 


The works were predominantly created in 2006 to about 2008. This body of work includes 22 completed panels and 11 panels in the design phase in the size of 15 x 60 inches.

Akasa Concept Commissioned Collections

These exclusive collections consist of large scale masterpiece bodies of art, continuing on the explorations from the previous series. The spectrum of luminosity, colour saturation, opalescence, and other properties of mineral pigments when used in conjunction with oil pigments are exemplified. The works are very heavily embedded with the highest grade gemstones. Mathematical concepts as expressed in the Vedas, the Kabbalah, and the Fibbonacci Sequence are incorporated. 


These works will contain the highest grade of minerals, gemstones, and workmanship... thus embodying the accumulation of knowledge, experience, and creative growth of the artist. These works will be exclusively available to select collectors as the final masterpiece edition in the lineage of this series, created by the artist in her lifetime.

Some collections are currently available for commission whilst others are reserved as under negotiation.
