TallBuddha

Philip Lynch's avatar Philip Lynch

TallBuddha presents two distinct digital collages, one on each side. it is a large scale sculpture, featuring over 1400 individual aluminum tiles created by transferring an original image via the dye sublimation process. It is composed of a wood frame structure, steel wire grid, hand-wrapped wire hangers and the tiles. Each tile is ~3.5" square; the overall tiled image is approximately 9' x 9' ; the entire sculpture is about 10' x 7' x 12'. TallBuddha juxtaposes technology and structure with ethereal spirituality. Air movement causes the tiles to flutter and dance in graceful patterns, due to their individual single wire mountings. The large scale and movement bring this art to life. The Buddha image represents unconditional peace and compassion. TallBuddha proposes awakening the universal divine essence in each one of us.
