Bette Davis’ Eyes

Art Description

I used acrylics for this painting. It is a representation of the eyes from the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. About fifteen years ago, I tried a similar piece just for fun. I felt that it was something that viewers wouldn’t appreciate so I gave it to a friend who absolutely loved it. It first started as a prayer wheel and then it developed into this.  If you notice, in the movies, especially in the European churches, they have these beautiful glass windows which look kind of like they’re joined together. It is called stained glass art. I have been trying to go abroad to learn this form of art. So, for me, until I get the opportunity to learn that, this canvas and this painting is stained art for me. Different fragments are put together but in stained glass it is so beautiful because the light comes through the glass. Hence, this painting is inspired by stained glass art and that is something that I want to do in the future.

About the Artist

My first recollection of doing art would be when I was around four years old. I remember my father had drawn a vehicle and I still have that image in my head. From then, I got interested in the three dimensional work of art. My father, he mentors me without expressing, he does not say it in words but deep down, I know he supports me fully. I met Asha Kama just months after VAST Bhutan had been established in 1998 and I have been a member ever since.

Born 1975, from Bumthang
