Base Chakra


I practice yoga every week and was curious to learn more about the seven chakras. Within this series of paintings I have been studying the seven chakras and experimenting with a new painting process. Each chakra is associated with a colour and lotus flower symbol with differing amounts of petals. Surrounding the symbol I painted the affirmations associated with the Chakra then applied layers of colour, finishing with a flower painted above the symbol. The flowers have either grown outside my studio or been gifted to me throughout the project.
Each 25 x 25cm oil paints on canvas.

Phrases associated with the Base Chakra are:

I am, I survive, I am safe, I have enough, I am grounded.
