Indian Summer Festival (2018)
Goddess of the Arts Festival Imagery
Goddess of the Arts is based off of the goddess form from my series, Rest In Power (2017). The musical instrument is a reference to Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and the arts.
Starweaver Collaboration at Pause Pavillion
"The Morning Star is a recurring image in the stories and in the life of noted Musqueam weaver and knowledge keeper Debra Sparrow. For rising visual artist Sandeep Johal, godesses and feminine power are compelling inspirations for her art. These two astounding artists have created a specifically commissioned collaborative artwork for Indian Summer Festival. The result is the stunning 'Starweaver' a goddess who weaves yarn and cultures together to create a tapestry of the starry, sheltering sky. Covering the entire ceiling of PAUSE Pavillion, 'Starweaver' is on display July 6-15."
