DESCRIPTION

Titled Meow Buddha, Sandra Vista presents six large-scale paintings on unstretched canvas. Begun in 2005, this painting series integrates bold colors and patterns combined with personal symbolism and spiritual definitions. Vista comes from a formal background that is seen in her use of stripes and geometric designs. Also evident is the influence of the “Pattern and Decoration Movement” of the 1980s. Vista explains that the Buddha series began with the idea of a Buddha in every painting, however, because of her studies of Eastern religion and her family’s beliefs that “God is everywhere,” the Buddha images began to take on animal and plant forms.
