"Green Tara Descending" – Mary DeVincentis
Green Tara Descending is from the Miksang Series by artist Mary DeVincintis, the Series used to illustrate "The Unseen World" in the Spring 2018 issue of Buddhadharma.
Miksang is Tibetan for “good eye.” It refers to pure perception; that is, seeing/experiencing without the filter of the conceptualizing mind. Through the contemplation of the smallest detail and the most fleeting of images, this kind of seeing evokes joy and an awareness of our interconnectedness to the entire fabric of life.
The artist says she is paying homage to miksang in this series of paintings which explores traditional Tibetan Buddhist iconography. Several pieces relate to the life and teachings of the historical Buddha, while others depict aspects of the female Buddha Tara in both her white and green manifestations.
Painter Mary DeVincentis employs a deeply personal iconography to investigate the dilemmas and mysteries of existence. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art and a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Printmaking from Central St, Martins in London, UK.
