Description: Tibet House US will present its next art exhibition entitled Mystic Nostalgia, featuring the gorgeous and imaginative paintings of Brazilian artist Tiffani Gyatso. This incredible body of work will be on display at the Tibet House US Gallery from June 14 ? August 29, 2012, beginning with a special opening reception on June 14, 2012, from 6-8pm. Gyatso?s colorful and emotive paintings fuse traditional Tibetan imagery with her own contemporary style inspired by her own spiritual search. Mystic Nostalgia reflects the internal process to understand those things in life that we do not yet have answers for, and sometimes cannot even articulate or name ? the mystic unknown. Captivating in its beauty and imagination, the exhibition reflects the spiritual journey and its pilgrimages through the inner places of love, heartbreak, fortitude and trust.
?These paintings took birth from an inner process of trying to find answers for those things with no name,? says Gyatso. Though her work is rooted in sacred iconography from Tibet, Gyatso also paints images that are abstract, inspired by inner gods and demons. Gyatso suggests that most of her paintings ?come from a broken heart trying to deal with illusions and passions, basing thought on the Buddhist dharma teachings, adopting a vision of spiritual practice through all that happens in the deep turmoil of samsara - the continuous cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth.?
