I finished a series of poem-paintings in mixed media in 2012 that are inspired and informed by the universal poetry of Rumi. These images reflect the spirituality of Rumi’s poems which echo my vision of bringing people from all corners together and celebrating life. By sharing my experiences and my thoughts in which I find echoes of Rumi’s great messages, I feel that I have opportunities to bring to my viewers certain understandings of harmony and peace through this important art project. In these poem-paintings I am recreating the peaceful, trance-like imagery to convey my messages of love and unity through the poems of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi.
I received individual artist fund from East Bay Community Foundation and private donors support for this project.
