An Avatar can be the embodiment of a concept or philosophy often in a person. In Hinduism, the term usually refers to the appearances of Vishnu to counteract some particular evil in the world. This Avatar is rising from the depths of that which is not manifested and is witnessing the swirling elements of nature.
Canvas 30×24. The photo was taken at an angle to minimize reflected light. As with most photos it’s tricky to see the multiple translucent layers. Anyway the combination of hardline geometrics and organic shapes and coloring worked out nicely. The painting expresses how sometimes the many parts of experience can be broken, but still somehow form a whole.
