Artist's Statement about this work: Everyday Buddhist is from my Tibetan Woman series. In this series I depicted four Tibetan mother’s images, who were of different ages. I met these women during journeys that I made to Tibet in the past years. Tibetan people have a unique religious culture, live an authentic and simple lifestyle. They are strong, resilient, and peaceful. I had always loved the Tibetan people, their unique Buddhist culture, and the magnificent scenery of Tibet. In this series, all the women were represented in their daily life. They are wearing distinguishable folk clothing and in settings with Tibetan Buddhist motifs in their background.
I stayed at this old mother’s house for a week during one trip in Tibet. She was in her 80’s and still participated daily labor. When she took breaks, she kept practicing daily Buddhist meditation. She passed away a few years after my visit. Her soul is in peace forever.
