DAVID WARDMAN Transcendence Design Contemporary
Artist David Wardman of Scotland Island, Australia creates archival giclee prints with archival ink on acid free Arches French paper in limited editions of 100. Each is actually a unique print, hand-stamped with different stamps and hand written with slight variations. We offer 18 sacred prints from his book Tantra Rasa and 6 notecards. David’s background in Asian-influenced landscape watercolor painting, abstract oils, and architectural illustration inform this work.
"My real interest lies in our true self, finding the source of a certain kind of spirituality. Vedic India offers this, also Buddhism as panacea for a lot of our woes, dont practice Buddhism except to meditate (which counts).
“I am interested in the way that a visual device can have embedded power, perhaps in the way that the mona lisa has a mesmerising power, but more so in yantras.
“The images, from the Tantras, are ancient diagrams that refer to the raising of the Kundalini, the Yantras are diagrams showing contracted currents of energy of the universal essence, currents that correspond with the energy currents of the body."
