Inner Sanctuary, 2020

R. Johar

Acrylic, pumice and tissue on canvas

Our bodies are our homes. For as long as we live, the only stable and permanent being in our lives is ourselves.

Beyond the host body is our souls, the purest, most content and divine version of ourselves.

The gold leaf in the composition is representative of purity and inner central light, further emphasized by the surrounding hypnotizing line gestures.

The ethereal purple and indigo palette express the stimulation of the power within that form vibrant and exciting energy.

Textures on the surrounding skin revealed through the use of pumice and cheesecloth create visual and emotional contrast between the body and the soul.
