Wake Up! Miriam Hernandez At Green Door May 31st

20140505-130054.jpg

Many of the works in the “Wake Up!” series are done on found repurposed bags, using ink-less calligraphy to write repetitions of mantras, both traditional ones or my own, serving as the base for the works. Layered over the writing is ink and/or acrylic and other mediums. Often prominently featured in the composition is an abstracted red geometric representation of a wrathful deity who encourages beings to confront our mortality, and to act with compassion towards all.
