The Awakening 2018 – Hyperlapse Video

The Awakening is the first piece from my “Journey to Samadhi” series where I will be creating works that spark positive narratives about spirituality from an African perspective. Our ancestral practices created with self-actualization intentions were labelled negatively by the western colonialists and that had an impact in how we approach this necessary subject in modern times.

I’m embracing more gold in my work as I’ve always been inspired by the way gold was beautifully rendered in sacred illuminated manuscripts during the Ottoman period and as seen in contemporary Tezhip art. Really had fun finding a way to incorporate in into this piece.

Enjoy!
