banners

chief celestial being

influential celestial being

So first with these two banners of Celestial Beings we honour our Mother and Father. Then should no doubt come Difficulties in the Beginning, so let’s take this one:

Banners are made entirely of hand-spun silk with cotton backing.  They can be carefully washed since the silk paint colours have been fixed.   The silk painting is framed in silk and can be hung by sliding a narrow rod through the slot provided in the backing cloth.  They can hang naked naturally or can be encased in a frame.

Now that my time is divided between Arunachala mountain and Australia I am no longer situated within an infrastructure to support this silk painting work, so perhaps another exhibition would be appropriate, although i am more than ever uncomfortable in an “Art” context; recently a friend suggested an exposition in the Melbourne Immigration Museum, and that i could envisage comfortably because it would include images and film about the place where all this creativity incubated and flourished, and also could accommodate all the different aspects from cartoons with spiritual undertones [and overtones] to juvenile poems to more than slightly sleazy or zany puppets. I like mixtures, especially profound and profane. To some extent.

Most of the remaining silk banners are stretched now behind glass and framed, which certainly is worth doing but it also imprisons them; i can’t even photograph them properly now. Ah well.

i will try to get some presentable photos and post them here let’s hope sooner than later. If anyone is interested in this work do please wave your hands in the air in the back row there. Here are the disastrous attempts of this morning:

Birth and Death badly photographed

You can see what i mean.

From here on the images were taken long ago prior to imprisonment:
