THE CRYSTAL SPIDER

"Over the palace of the god Indra a vast network of precious gems was hanging, so arranged that if you looked at one you saw all the others reflected in it."
From the Avatamsaka Sutra

Threading crystal beads started my journey into the world of light. During an art residency in India I used gemstones and crystals as art material and discovered what was to be the object of my artistic wonder : light. Light became a medium and a subject of exploration at the same time, merging spiritual, philosophical and scientific mysteries. 

Fascinated by the concept of the web of life and the net of the god Indra, a metaphor used to illustrate the interdependence and interpenetration of life in Buddhist philosophy, I created series of netted like objects combining crystals, gemstones and light.
