Buddhadharma : Spring 2011
her New York gallery, Michael Rosenfeld. She began using Buddhist images in her work shortly afterward. In the 1960s she learned Mahayana practices from Tibetan Buddhists in exile, and in 1967 immersed herself in the teachings under the tutorship of Tibetan monk Khyongla Rato, a friendship that lasted till her death. Her adventurous life put her far ahead of most of her era. She is known in the art world for her orderly geometries of color and form. The vibrant paintings at the Rubin date from the 1960s and are usually found hanging in the closets of Pop Art and Op Art. Now we learn that she was looking closely at Tibetan thangkas and was simplifying their spiritual systems into resonant images meant to invoke a higher reality. A paint- ing like The Ascent to Mt. Meru is a pathway to a colorist heaven constructed of circles and squares. If it seems in some ways like an illustration of Tibetan visual themes, we have to remember what the rest of the world around her was like. In creating context for an artwork, a museum has the gravi- tational power of a black hole. It’s difficult to imagine what would happen to von Wiegand’s work in the psychic gulf of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for instance. The Rubin’s adven- ture in the surprisingly compatible realms of contemporary art and Buddhism performs a service that brings light to dark places and bodes well for future experiments like this one.
