Communication was started in Feb 2018 in Goa, India. It then made its way up to Nepal where it was finally finished for the first blossom in April inside of a Tibetan Thangka painting studio near Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu. It demonstrates The law of Conservation of Energy, This law means that energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another.
From the earth we rise, magnetic pulses communicating through the air like pollen, we are flowers blossoming standing tall, love enamating to the full, and someday into the Earth we shall fall, whilst our pollen.... an infinite tool, a legacy no matter how small, like a molecule, with enough fuel to generate a whirlpool... remembering...theres only one rule...
The mandala is a ritual symbol in various traditions, representing the universe. They are to promote spiritual practitioners attention as a focal guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. It is through altering your breathing that we can re-tune our bodies to more primitive states of divinity, hence its emergence around the figure as a halo.
Within the Mandala... a Tibetan script regarding bodhisattva Avalokitesvara’s mantra of compassion.
“Om Mani Padme Hum” Om is sacred syllable that signifies the essence of the ultimate reality beyond vibration, The word Mani means "jewel" or "bead", Padme is the "lotus flower" and Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment. This mantra can be broken down into 7 syllables, each represent different deites, colours and other symbols within the spiritual texts.
Om - Generosity, Ma - Ethics, Ni - Patience, Pad - Dilligence, Me - Renunciation, Hum - Wisdom.
'Communication' Original Canvas
Every original canvas has been hand painted with immense gratitude and love by Joey Baker.
The paintings range from weeks to months of work depending on their detail, every single piece has travelled the world extensively sometimes to multiple continents before being finished. From Jungles to deserts, Volcanoes to Tropical Islands, from Palaces to Temples to street corners and everywhere in between. They are my personal account of the world I experience.
Each canvas is painted with high quality acrylic paint onto Berlin based Gesso Canvas. The paintings once finished have then been double varnished in Golden © Semi-Gloss Varnish for the best results for both vibrancy and protection, they have then been individually bespoke framed.
Every Original Canvas also comes with:
Signed COA (Certificate of Authenticity)
Original A4 Drawing
Hand Embellished Canvas Print (of your choice & size)
