Electric Buddha
(completed 2008)

36" dia. x .25" (92.16 cm x 0.64 cm)
white acrylic and Neon

This piece was done for a Yoga school.  The owner wanted something using Neon that would use the seated figure surrounded by different colored lines, implying that all paths lead to enlightment.  But try as I could, nothing seemed to work out as I sketched the idea.  Finally I decided to use the figure itself within a Lotus leaf on a circular background.  This seemed to be a natural solution.  The small backlit red area represents the state of enlightenment.  Location of work:  Charlotte, NC.
