Oliver Hazard Benson
Shakti Dysnomia - Hindu Goddess in Quite Difficult Yoga Pose on Flame Background

2018

$1,200

About

Shakti, one of the most important goddesses in the Hindu pantheon, is really a divine cosmic energy that represents feminine energy and the dynamic forces that move through the universe. She is represented here in a Yoga pose that is definitely one for the gods! She is set on a background of flames as she is capable of destroying demonic forces and restoring balance. Oliver Hazard Benson Shakti Dysnomia acrylic on panel 5h x 7w in 12.70h x 17.78w cm OB0085 Oliver Hazard Benson's paintings are produced directly from his imagination and deals with a mixture of imagery he has witnessed in his travels, dreams, and read about in literature. The artist is influenced by Taoism and European occultism, especially the movements of the late 19th and early 20th century. Hazard is also inspired by Surrealism and the Viennese school of Fantastic Realism imagery as well as the technique and practice of old Tibetan painting and that of Renaissance Europe. His imagery comes from his imagination within and doesn't rely on specific models whether visual, literal or otherwise cultural; but also does not avoid the appearance of recognizable figures (such as a specific god or goddess) should one of them appear.
