2020-19 Images from a Burning World

Images from a Burning World is a theme that began in 2018 inspired by a Buddhist sutra the Fire Sermon. It presents life, as we usually live it, being on fire.

The landscapes born from this analogy draw influence from various roots: Late modern period exploration and cartography, Romantic era mountain landscapes, East Asian landscape painting and the book Mount Analogue: A Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures in Mountain Climbing by René Daumal (1908-1944).

The drawings, done by brush, can be seen as visualizations made during a voyage to Terra Incognita Internus – an unexplored area that exists within our minds.
