Family Tree
2013
Acrylic paint on stretched canvas
40"x40", gallery wrapped
The subject of "Family Tree" is an olive tree whose foliage is painted using traditional South Asian mehndi designs. The foliage contains a collection of doves holding olive branches, as well as circles containing symbols representing various religions. One of the circles remains empty to represent both the many faiths that I could not include (for lack of space), including atheism or agnostic beliefs. Regardless what one believes, or does not believe, we are all part of the human family.
