Jiriki
Jiriki 自力 ”Self Power”, seeking enlightenment through one’s own merit and religious practice. I find watching the night sky to be very peaceful meditation. Jiriki is a mini collage [4"X4"X1.5” D] created for an Annual 30/30 challenge. A pale blue circle decorated with varying size stars is surrounded by a circle of gold colored beads. The focal point is a calm paper cast face raised up with a clear gold colored button. The outer background is a light colored red purple. Works were created by 30+ Artists, creating 30 pieces in 30 days of the month of June. This is a mixed media/collage done on stretched canvas. It is lightweight and can be easily hung in a cubicle because of its small size.
