RISING LOTUS (lotus lady) | Artist: Jacob Philip
Part of my “Shades of a Woman” series, this piece was inspired by a picture from Instagram but have been modified in ways to give it more depth. The main focus is the lotus, which is the symbol of purity and resurrection. The flower which sprouts from within the woman denotes the divine and compassionate nature of a woman. Her nudity and her hands which forms the green leaves convey that she is one with the earth. The opaque cloth in the background plays to add life and movement to the painting. This painting tries to portray the inner vitality of the woman in a way that transcends her individuality.
