The painting here is one of the Buddha painting series. But this one is created specifically for this show. Gold leaves are mainly used in this painting and these gold leaves are specific handmade which will be suitable for painting. But this painting is still in progress. The time that Buddha was enlightened was 2500/2600 years ago but people still believe that Buddha is still alive. That’s why, they keep offering flowers and fruits to Buddha and gold leaves are included as well. Buddha is not comparable to the others. The reason why people still believe in Buddha after so many years is because of the firmness of his philosophies and guidance. Therefore, I’m creating this in monochrome and putting gold leaves on it because I want to describe the belief of people on Buddha. In this painting, there will be the image of Buddha which is created from an angle where people can watch tranquilly. And then, I put the gold leaves on Buddha as an offering. I’m creating this painting as a sign of offering gold leaf on Buddha in my own style which is kind of different from reality.
