Sacred lotus ink is as remarkable, and unexpected, as the final artworks. I create ink from charred lotus petals distilled with pure Battambang rainwater. Annually I collect used donations of blessed flowers gifted during the Lord Buddhaís birthday.
I title each of my paintings based on the total of lotus embossed stamps on each piece, and I include the exact number as part of my artists signature.
Pointillism, using lotus as both theme and application. It is the perfect imagery for Cambodia, as this flower symbolizes the Lord Buddha’s spiritual awakening, emerging from the muddy dark depths into light and becoming a flash of beauty. “I envision my pieces ecologically, holistically and spiritually, with Asian nature and culture as the inspiration,” explains Morrison. “Lotus stems are my paintbrush, while its flowers create my tones.”
