“Tree of Life” is inspired by 1st verse, 15th Chapter, Bhagwatgita in which Krishna explains to Arjuna that life is like a Banyan tree. We create the continuation of our existence by our own actions. These actions are like the roots of the banyan tree, which keep expanding and just like our karmas keep us entangled in our own births and rebirths. This is also the khel of maya. Her artworks consist of ‘acrylics and inks on canvas with 24ct gold and silver leaf‘.

Multi – media, multi deminsiobal artist & sculptor, Seema Kohli says “The tree of life for me is a very important element of nature and is probably there in all my works. It is as important as the embryonic form, as is it representational of steadfastness, rootedness, probably the only element of nature which expresses the connection of all the three worlds, or the trinity in Hindu mythology—the world beneath us (where the actual creation takes place, tamas)- Brahma, the world we are living in- Vishnu (or the sustenance or growth, rajas) —— and also the heavens or the unknown –Mahesh (sattva, the seat of salvation or truth)”.
