Vibrant Blue Buddha with White Ammonite

Marlene Rose
Bookshelf Buddha – Vibrant Blue with White Ammonite, 2019.
Original sand-cast glass sculpture with a metal stand.
Etched signature on verso.
This artwork is available.

All of my work, whether figurative or abstract, has a spiritual aspect to it. Looking East was inevitable as the paintings, calligraphy, architecture, and even the East’s clothing seem to share that common quality. While the Buddha faces that I create are inspired by Buddhas from Vietnam, China, and India, the concept of the face itself has come to mean much more to me. It seems that the imagery transcends culture and appeals to a universal common thread in humanity, of the striving to be bigger than oneself and to dissolve the man-made barriers between cultures and peoples. These threads are all drawn together for me on these faces.
