Liberation on Seeing


Tsakli images can convey their meanings directly without the absolute necessity for words. However, similarly to the Western ‘emblematic’ tradition, certain mantras, instructions or names recorded on the reverse of tsakli cards can help to clarify and provide extra insights. Over the years I have been compiling many examples of mystical visual art designed to “liberate on seeing” by using various means to by-pass the everyday mind and make us think about reality in another way.
