Each time a flame burns it never remains the same, each leap in the Universe is new and spirited. But, each moment of its fragile existence the flame finds renewal every second. As angels are imbued with the spirit of God, so is the flame of fire His servant. The flame is purity enshrined! As it keeps dropping the wax on the floor…the mind has to keep dropping the excess to reach tabula rasa so it shines brighter every moment.
From the series titled, “Tabula Rasa…for a new beginning”!
Tabula Rasa in Latin means a clear slate, and originates from the Roman tabula or wax tablet used for notes, which was blanked by heating the wax and then smoothening it, to give a tabula rasa. In Psychology, it relates to the theory that at birth the (human) mind is a “blank slate” without rules for processing data, and that data is added and rules for processing are formed solely by one’s sensory experiences. And so in order to reach for his goals and desires, despite the setbacks that one has faced, one needs to clear his mind to reach a tabula rasa and start afresh. In this series, the artist has exhibited pictures those describe the meaning of ‘Tabula Rasa’, ‘before it is reached’ and ‘after it is reached’ in the human mind.
