“Follow Your Bliss” Paintings by Phurba Namgay
I’m a huge fan of the work of Joseph Campbell, mythologist and general wiseman . In his writings, much is made of dreams and archetypes. George Lucas, of Star Wars fame, credits Campbell with inspiring many of the characters in the films. I highly recommend the video series by Bill Moyers regarding Campbell’s book, The Power of Myth.
Bhutanese artist, Phurba Namgay fires off the same themes in his amazing paintings. Rockets, he says, remind him of mythical dragons (fire breathing I assume!). I’m ready for take-off.
