Acrylic, including metallic green, on antique Sri Lankan wooden window shutter.
Size: 38 x 56cm (15 x 22")
This painting represents a female silhouette painted with metallic green into a modern bright mandala type shape. Outer paint spots are the remains of the original window paint. The painting represents a fusion between the old and the new, the bright and the fading, the modern and the antique; the life's play between polarities!..
This painting is part of the "GOD Within" collection, which depicts Mahen's own inner deity, by drawing it inside a silhouette, generally a feminine one. It enhance the possibility for you to find your own inner consciousness too, which by the way, might not look the same at all!
