Quote 20 Aug 104 notes
The essence of Hinduism is that it has no essence. What defines Hinduism and sets it apart from other major religions is its polycentricity, its admission of multiple centers of belief and practice, with a consequent absence of any single structure of theological or liturgical power. Unlike Christianity, Buddhism or Islam, there is no one single canonical text — the Bible, the Dialogues of the Buddha, the Quran — that serves as a fundamental axis of hermeneutical or doctrinal endeavor, recording the words of a foundational religious teacher. (The Veda is only the earliest in a diverse corpus of Hindu texts.) Hinduism is a banyan tree, in the shade of whose canopy, supported by not one but many trunks, a great diversity of thought and action is sustained.

Liza Lacroix's portraits, characters 

artist on tumblr

Faces are the most expressive parts of our body, but as painted by Canadian artist Liza Lacroix they become confused blotches of thick paint. Perhaps that’s what pushes us to delve even deeper into them with our gaze.

The series, realized by Lacroix in 2013, follows up on another collection of works on bigger canvases whose subject was the face of Commedia dell’Arte character Pierrot. After transforming her home in Brooklyn into a studio, the more limited and intimate working space is reflected in these paintings in a smaller format and its tormented subjects.

The portraits are made using an oil technique on Lexan, a resin that belongs to the family of polycarbonates, used often for advertising posters. The colors are instead applied with a sumptuous yet tremulous style.

Liza was particularly inspired by the representation of fabrics in fashion and art, with their rich tones and textures. In particular by a Prada ad campaign and an exhibition on Manet at the Metropolitan. Among her influences Liza also lists Mark Rothko, the artist who was a precursor of color field painting, and the environment in which he lives, made of simple and chance encounters: “Happy accidents” she calls them.
