Artist statement

Garden of the Soul

The photo depicts my personal definition of, and experience with, being spiritual, which especially occurs when I meditate. The photograph showcases a person draped in prayer rugs with flowers blooming from their chest to showcase shedding oneself from all things mundane and carnal in life. In bridging a gap between the self and a higher power/God, a person (in this case,I, the artist) can go back to being one with nature and a higher power/God. Like a flower, when I immerse myself in spirituality, transcending all things worldly, I experience pureness and beauty. I would like to think that I am back to the very root of it all, untarnished and livelier than ever.
