The hazy portrait of the woman signifies her mastery over the nature of reality showing the illusory aspects of all phenomena. Recognizing the impermanence of all things, the tranquillity of her mind is not disturbed by mundane activities. The red background represents her love and compassion for all sentient beings. She is holding a Tam medallion in order to invoke Tara’s (female Buddha) blessings. The two wrathful red masks are a manifestation of her warrior spirit ready to destroy any obstacles. Blue water lilies, mushrooms and two mythical creatures are symbols for a shift in perception of reality. Therefore, she remains in an awakened and joyful state of mind.

Buddhism, consciousness, psychedelics, human warrior spirit, shamanism, tangible and the intangible culture of Bhutan influence our subject matter. We express our understanding and views on these subjects through the use of traditional and non-traditional icons and symbols. Humans are the focal point in the works as symbols of sacred warriors of the awakened mind.
Wisdom is used as a tool to discover the basic goodness of human life. Most of the faces in the work are of imaginary women as they represent wisdom and energy embodying humanity and divinity in feminine form. They are the guardians of spiritual practice and represent the empty quality of luminous awareness. The colourful patterns in the paintings evoke transcendence or psychedelic vibes implying altered state of consciousness.
