The 'Mystery of Entanglements' Series are collaborative works on paper
by M G Walker and Ellen Johansen.
The images honour and draw inspiration from Rabindranath Tagore, the 19th Century Bengali poet, artist and teacher who described 'line drawings of beauty' or 'rooper rekha' . Tagore titled one of his later paintings:
'The Black and White Threads Weave the Destiny of Man into a Mystery of Entanglements'
These collaborative small paintings reference the Eastern idea that man's experience is enclosed or 'tangled' in an illusory dream world created by his mind. To be free of this 'entanglement' spiritual insight is required to penetrate that illusion.
