Child of God emanates ethereal tranquility. As birth and death demarcate the boundaries of earthly life, what happens before and after, or even in between, remains largely a mysterious phenomenon. In her tenth solo exhibition, artist J. Anunaran explores the vast topic through her innovative techniques and personally stylized approach to ancient Mongolian spiritual imagery in correlation with Tibetan Buddhist animal symbolism. Child of God represents hope, longing, rebirth, and the space of transition between material and non-material realms. It intimates the artist’s concept of beingness at the crossroads of dreamlike reality and mythical fantasy.
Protected, peaceful, and rich with symbolism, Anunaran’s view of the space between reality and beyond is a world of delicate, childlike enchantment with the mystical, dreamlike experiences of life.
