Description Buddha means 'enlightened' one. And one can hardly argue that Jesus wasn't enlightened.This is from my Texan Book of the Dead exhibit, comparing and contrasting Eastern and Western views of permanence and impermanence, life and death, and what comes after. This painting blends common Eastern or Buddhist iconography with Christian bible symbols.
Ann Huey, Dallas Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I am proud to be from a place where so much talent has sprouted from oil and rice fields and drainage ditches and other toxic goo—Beaumont, Texas—a shady, stinky corner of the state that shares a tendency to mildew with its close neighbor, Louisiana. Naturally, I have made idols out of the likes of big time artists John Alexander, Paul Manes, Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur), photographer Keith Carter, writer Mary Karr (Groves), dead singer Janis Joplin (Port Arthur), and a terrific wealth of other-worldly-gifted, interesting characters not famous, but just as unbalanced.
