Devotion


Mixed Media/Fiber      36“ W x 50″ L

This piece was inspired by my visit to Tibet. “Devotion” tells the story of the piety and dedication shown to the Dali Lama by pilgrims. This woman walked hundreds of miles to worship The Buddha at the Potala Palace. Prayers are offered through prayer flags, prayer beads and prostration to the Buddha. The classic blue and orange palette helps interpret the intensity of scene. “Devotion” is part of the series called “The Search for God” that I began in 2009 and continue to build on today. I used hand dyed and painted fabric of cotton, silk, and velvet. Photo transfer was used to create the worshipping women and the prayer flags. Stitching built the texture of the mountains and clouds.      $1,200
