Each six-by-six foot fabric panel on display at this powerful exhibit features an interpretation of the Buddha. While every depiction show the religious figure in a peaceful, meditative pose, creeping flames appear to engulf each one. The imagery references the all-too-frequent self-immolations that take place in Tibet, the ancestral home of the artist, Tenzing Rigdol. Fittingly, Rigdol’s art, a form of spiritual protest against the Chinese occupation of Tibet, will be on display at the oldest religious structure in Denver, the Emmanuel Gallery.
