FRG Objects & Design / Art in Hudson, NY exhibited Zen Dot Energy in their space that combines traditional gallery style presentation of fine art with high quality interior design.
There will be an opening reception for Zen Dot Energy, a series of paintings by Woodstock artist Merrill Steiger, at FRG Objects & Design/Art on Saturday, September 5, 2015, from 6 to 9pm. The paintings are inspired aboriginal art, power spots, and India’s tantric traditions of circles and chakras.
Visiting spiritual power spots, or geographic sites charged with positive energy, has brought her into contact with the art of aboriginal Australians, and the indigenous traditions of Africa and Asia, including Cambodia, Vietnam, India, the Himalayas, and Japan. The artist’s travels, study, and life experiences in such places continue to be a strong influence and inspiration to her work.
In 1999, an extended art meditation brought on an intuitive transformation and a reflection of India’s tantric traditions of circles and chakras, which eventually led to the completion of the Zen Dot Energy series in 2004.
Zen Dot Energy will be on view through November 2015.*
*The exhibition was extended through to December of 2015 due to the positive reception of the series at FRG Objects & Design / Art.
