New Painting. Split. 18" x 24" Mixed media on paper. 2010

When we are split open. When we have lost control. When things fall apart. This is what lies at the heart: sheer communion.

New Painting. As yet untitled. 18" x 24" Mixed media on paper. 2010

This is an aching, acrid representation of the imagined return as an im/migrant. It is the recognition that the journey is the only place of wholeness. It is a vision of a longing, like the ache of a lost traveller. It pays homage to the kingfisher who migrates back and forth, alone, year... after year and yet, as Dogen says, "leaves no trace behind and does not need a guide." If we long to live in two places at once and cannot, survival insists that we abandon the earth and claim the sky.

This new painting is both a departure from my previous work and a piece created on the theme of Departure". Enjoy!

The Image Interview

Toronto Photographer Joel Yum generously interviewed me in the MISC Studio with his camera. He caught some lovely moments. Thank you Joel!

Creative Convo!

There is a lot going on behind the scenes at Meera Sethi Creative. I am busy creating new art, new products for sale, an online store and applying for exhibitions and grants! Expect lots of good news this Autumn!

During this time, I have also been learning a great deal about being a creative entrepreneur and running a business as an artist. I have come across wonderful resources that provide tips on making and marketing art.

In the upcoming posts, I will be sharing these resources along with other posts on artists and designers I love, starting creative conversations about the role of an artist and, of course, all the usual goodness about my artistic whereabouts. So tell all your friends, especially the ones who could benefit from this and let's start a creative convo!

With BIG love, Meera

That's right people, Happy New Year, Happy New Work! I know new work has been a long time coming, but honestly, 2009 being the way it was, the new year has also been a long time coming :)

Here are three works of mixed media on mylar of the classic bodhisattva padmapani from the Ajanta caves. Those of you familiar with India's Gupta Period and its stunning, smooth, highly evolved forms of art would particularly enjoy this piece. As with much of my work, these pieces are intended to evoke a contemplative existence.

All works are for sale and can be shipped anywhere. Email for prices.

Blessings for 2010.
