Buddhadharma : Spring 2019
The cover illustration by Juan Gatti comes from his series of collages, Cien- cia Naturales (Natural Sciences), which blends nineteenth-century anatomical drawings with studies of plants and ani- mals, creating a kind of dialogue between humans—fully exposed—and the natural world. Gatti is an Argentina-born illustra- tor who has worked as an art director for the record label CBS, collaborated with fashion icons such as Kenzo Takada and Karl Lagerfeld, served as creative director of Vogue Italia, and designed the graphic art for most of Pedro Almodóvar’s films. He works out of Madrid, Spain. In her series The Bound (page 72), Elizabeth Heyert wrapped people in bandages, rendering them, in her words, “physically powerless and emotionally isolated.” An internationally acclaimed art and architecture photographer, she has said this series was the most emotionally difficult of her career. “The layers go deep,” she says, “involving trust, safety, vulnerability, dependence, creative and emotional need, and the very nature of intimacy.” Heyert’s studio is located in Chelsea, New York. As a child during the Khmer Rouge era, Sopheap Pich, widely considered today to be Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist, frequented a temple that had become an execution site. The bloodstains and darkness of that place inspired “Buddha” (page 108), which can be viewed as a metaphor for Cambodia itself—either as an unraveling or as something in the process of creation. Though his work isn’t intended to be Buddhist, Pich says, “Focus and labor—that’s what keeps me going, so if that falls into the Buddhist- whatever-philosophy, then it is.” ABOUT THE ART (TOP-BOTTOM)FELIXVALIENTE|NINASUBIN|COURTESYOFTHEARTISTANDTYLERROLLINSFINEART,NEWYORK BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 13
