Rooted and Rising by Hilary Peirce
Japanese paper, acrylic on wood panel
16 x 20 inches
Artist Statement: A representation of a moment in yoga practice when our feet are "rooted" on the earth and our heart/mind "rises" to the heavens, and we are standing firm in that which we are: benevolent, kind beings, whole and unbroken.
Bio: Art is a spiritual practice as much as a creative endeavor; the two aspects merge together to guide the work. I draw on meditation practices and contemplation as a jumping off point for creating imagery and narratives related to Buddhist philosophy, the interconnectedness of the natural world, and what it means to be human. The newest work, shown here, represents the peace of spiritual refuge. My work has been exhibited at the State Museum of Pennsylvania and various regional galleries and group shows. I am available to teach meditation classes and art workshops for individuals and groups.
