My beautiful studio
An opportunity to look once again into Brahma’s gaze
Sometimes paintings say they are finished several times before they really are..
Love and Strength, acrylic on canvas, 1020 x 1980mm, 2017 … Natano Fa’anana is supported by the love of his family
The Glance of Brahma, acrylic on Belgian linen, 1700 x 2400mm, 2016 …. All our lives, histories and dreams are but a moment in the passing glance of Brahma
Form and Formlessness, acrylic on canvas, 1200 x 1500mm, 2016 … the formlessness of sleep.
Very happy to be invited into this show!
Thanatos is the sibling of Hypnos in Greek mythology. Death and Sleep
Mid-year, preparing for 2 group shows and then the September studio show. This is the second year that I’ve been invited into the Downlands Art Exhibition, and I’m quite excited about making some work specially for it!
Also lately I have been exploring new ways to approach the sleep series. Each new Sleeper/painting inspires further concepts around that diaphanous liminality at the point where consciousness is most slippery. I keep trying to make smaller works, yet they continue to grow. I will have to just follow the path that they lead me on.
