Brian Farrell self portrait

Brian Farrell self portrait

This is an amazing painting. I feel curious about the symbols the artist is using and the ultimate meaning or message he wishes to pass on to us, his admirers! The geometric symbols remind me of Yantras.

Yantras are sacred geometric designs containing the energy of a particular deity or planet. Each design enhances a specific quality within such as love, forgiveness and strength. These ancient forms handed down were used by the Tantrics of Ancient India to heal and uplift the energy both in the internal and external environment.

The self-portrait depicts the artist at the center of the world -his world, his universe-, as if bringing to him power, energy, knowledge, wisdom. He seems to be in command! That´s a lesson to learn, a goal to fulfill.

Bravo, Brian!
