Cody Seekins' Jataka Tales

February 27, 2014

Words from artist Cody Seekins: "The Jātaka Tales are an interesting collection of allegories in how they recognize the subject's direction toward enlighten yet center on the narrative of the self as manifest identities and egos working out the karma, or groundwork, which precedes. This framework allows me to build a body of paintings pulling from both my exterior and interior life. The modus operandi, therefore, concerns the illustration of abstract psychological objects and relationships through figurative and comparatively concrete forms. Ultimately this means I am building my own contemporary Jatakas."
