I’m thrilled to be able to offer my Meditation paintings as limited edition prints. The Meditation paintings arose after my artist residency in New Delhi in 2012 and subsequent visits to southern India to the sacred Shiva mountain in Arunachala in Tamil Nadu, where I delved into deeper layers of meditation in devotional prayer with Sri Ramana Marharshi at his ashram and mountain cave.
On returning to my studio in the UK, I found myself making these paintings in a very deliberate way, and one quite foreign to my typical style. My hand wanted only to work with an ordered and disciplined brushstroke, applying the paint horizontally rather than in the free and expressive brushstrokes of my usual style.
Each painting is made in a different colour palette, built up in layers and layers of pigment, adjusted and repainted until I was happy with the result.
Depicting pristine landscapes with clear depths and untouched by human contact, these quiet paintings in tranquil tones bring a sense of purity and peace. Gradations of tonal colour relate to layers of consciousness and the richness of palette evokes a pleasing harmony.
There are 7 prints available in my online shop and are signed and individually numbered from the edition of 250. Each one comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
All my paintings are professionally photographed using a high resolution camera and edited in the lab to ensure excellent image quality. Printed on natural white smooth matte paper using archival inks and custom trimmed with a 5cm white border.
There are eight in the series and all can be used as aids to mindfulness and meditation. They look great hung alone or in groups to create an ambience of contemplation and reflection.
Perfect for creating your den of zen!
