Me and seven other artists were invited by the Rubin Museum of Art to reinterpret the Tibetan Wheel of Life. I’m going to be painting hell!
As part of the program, I’ll be speaking with curator Beth Citron this Friday about Tibetan art (I used to practically live at Tibet House when I was in college) and pieces from the Rubin Museum’s collection. Hope I can see you there!
The Wheel of Life is a visual 1-0-1 of Buddhist doctrine; a reminder of our Karmic responsibility to remove ourselves from the world of suffering. In conjunction with the exhibition, Hero, Villain, Yeti: Tibet in Comics, eight contemporary artists have been invited to reinterpret segments of the Wheel of Life based on their own artistic experiences in a three-part series: Karma-Con.
Join the Rubin Museum of Art and the following comic artists and illustrators Molly Crabapple, Sanya Glisic, Ben Granoff, Rodney Greenblat, Steven Guarnaccia, Michael Kupperman, Josh Neufeld and Katie Skelly in taking a new perspective on this ancient religious image.
