A Moonsong for a Sunbird

Aug 31, 2019 - Oct 04, 2019

Diverse philosophies have attempted to explain and understand the unmanifest world and dimensions of the subtle mind beyond the gross level. In that largely unknown space, we are all connected. Perhaps being tuned into that space allows one certain intuitive abilities, which sometimes can be made visual. In a kaleidoscope of fluid patterns, forms, and markers, Seema Kohli taps into this multiplicity of dimensions and unites the poetic and whimsical with the profundity of philosophy. The compilation of works in ‘A Moonsong for a Sunbird’ is built around the interconnectedness of the vast web of life, and the central role of feminine energy in human and cosmic understanding. In constant visual and conceptual acknowledgment, Seema relives her awareness of the varied layers of consciousness: She contemplates the Self, the creation of the universe, time and space, energy and life. Her artistic language continually grows and shapes itself to organize the fluctuating world, bringing meaning into every experience. Through her works, she seeks to understand the organic and unceasingly evolving processes of all beings and matter. Absorbing and interpreting timeless cycles of sights and sounds, movement and rhythm, her work emerges from an open channel that brings past, present, and future into a palpable sphere of existence at the micro and macrocosmic level. She consciously surveys differ ences and builds pathways between extremes – sacred and secular, reality and fantasy, objectivity and subjectivity -offering to viewers the perceptions of a balanced mindscape. These themes transcend myopic views of reality and arise from an evolved understanding of ancient knowledge systems and recognition of dimensions within and beyond the material world. Her core identification with feminine energies appears prominently within her visual language – whether as powerful goddesses in the Indian context, or more universal energies constituting aspects of nature and the divine. She dwells on the concept of Hiranyagarbha or the Golden Womb, which is the primordial and eternal womb that nourishes, generates, and revives the cosmic order. As space within a space, it encompasses all universes, and also the five elements—earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Within the context of her work, Seema embraces history, spirituality, social concerns, and cultural reflections, as well as gender discussions and feminism in a subtle way – connecting her personal context with a universal one.
