Mississauga, April 15 (CINEWS): In honour of Sikh Heritage Month, Kenyan-born artist Juss Kaur is bringing her distinctive, meditative artwork “My Master’s Touch” to Mississauga. The exhibition will be at the Sikh Heritage Museum from April 22nd to 26th.
The artist invites viewers to interpret the particle nature of the universe through vibrant colours and a style combining art, spirituality, and physics.
“My ultimate goal is to hint at the illusionary nature of our world, while at the same time subtly implying that the universal spirit surrounds us,” says Kaur. “I hope to show that there is a divine presence in all creation.”
Kaur’s art composes images using the word “waheguru,” handwritten as a meditation to create a dotted, pointillist-like effect. A painting can contain between 500 and 20,000 wahegurus. Pronounced “wah-hay-goo-roo,” the phrase is similar to phrases like “Allah-Hu” or “Om” in other spiritual traditions. “Wah” means infinite, “hay” means “thou,” and “guru” means “higher self,” or the divine teacher within.
All profits from the exhibition will go to the charity PCHS, a community-based health services provider helping to combat alcohol abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence, and many other issues that often go unrecognized. Further information can be found at www.pchs4u.com.
Juss Kaur holds a Doctor of Philosophy from Oxford University and has lived in Montreal for over thirty years. Further information about the artist and her work can be found at www.jusskaur.com.
