Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) was an Indian artist, poet, musician, philosopher and spiritual guide.
He chose the theme of birds to symbolise the freedom of the soul. His simple and expressive lineÂ drawings, said Yehudi Menuhin, â€œtransport us men, who would be winged, to the birds, which we haveÂ tried to emulate.â€
Central TAFE Showcase GalleryÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â 17-27 February, 2009
A series of new works that re-present objects, ephemera and collected oddments found in deceased estates, roadside collections and second-hand stores. Through items including diary collections, family holiday slides and letters to loved ones, the works investigate the recording of existence; questioning mortality, and the traces left behind.
