In early Buddhism, the Bodhisattva is described as someone who is still subject to birth, illness, death, sorrow, defilement, and delusion. I thought it fitting to paint "Bodhisattva" as many people are experiencing the virus in some way to some degree. It seems we can possibly relate to the Bodhisattva
On the other hand, one can just enjoy the playfulness of the colorful shapes or follow the lines, as if on a path, and let the eye discover what it may

This is a 'relative', as it were, of the "Portal" painting. Style-wise, color field painting, ie. Kenneth Noland, is borrowed and controlled accidents (smeared paint), via Gerhard Richter, is also used to create what appears to be an otherworldly environment where the viewer is suspended in space, maybe looking out of a spaceship at the cosmos, or it could be a representation of a dichotomy or duality of calm and chaos, the classic eternal struggle of opposites to possibly gain mastery over each other or, at the least, to maintain a certain balance in this world

Originally, the concept for this painting was somewhat different and loosely based on a painting I had done previously (Orange Stripe). "It looked good on paper" as a thumbnail sketch but just not fleshed out, as it were. It only developed and evolved after studying the unsatisfactory result of the original idea for a several days. Somehow, I needed to express the idea of passing through one dimension to another either spiritually or even physically. But even after I felt that I had successfully expressed the idea of moving from one dimension to another, such as in a NDE, I realized that it could also represent a literal physical passage (a crevice of some sort) or symbolically, even a right of passage. In any case, I think I left enough to the imagination of the viewer to make that determination
