Buddha in pain

Acrylic and pastel on canvas 

24"x48" Year 2018

For centuries, Buddha has been symbol of love and peace. Due some selfish people in the world, sometimes humans suffer whether these are atrocities of war or hatred among different races and religions. 

This painting tires to depict the pain Buddha will feel today if he could see the world today. Red color in the painting represents the pain in Buddha's heart.

I will not be able to reproduced this art work even if I want to as this work emerged from the abstract work I was doing. I was confused and was staring at the canvas about how to proceed. Suddenly I could see the image of Buddha popping out from the blurs of colourful lines and edges! And I painted this piece. Seems a message to me!!
