Tantric Self-Portrait in Jaipur, 37" x 37"
2000 - 2001, black and white photograph with oil, acrylic, gold, mud, and vermillion powder
In my work, I'm establishing contact with my inner self based on what I am feeling in that very moment... Even though we live in the moment, it is possible to have a picture of the future through meditation and by perceiving the direction in which things are going. Through ritual and practice, it is possible to change anything.
This image was shown at the Admit One Gallery in New York in 2003, and resides in the permanent collection of the Ackland Art Museum, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
