ARCHIVE > PRAYER BEADS

This series of paintings focus on abstract orbs that originate from my interest in prayer beads, which are used by members of various religious traditions. These orbs are usually in an orientation resembling symbols like Lemniscates, Analemmas, Circles, knots and other similar symbols. The colors of these beads reference the western adaptation of the psycho-spiritual belief system of Chakras. These three aspects; the abstract beads, symbol(s), and color(s) help activate a surface (i.e. an interior and/or exterior wall).
