The Portal of Quest - a painting by Reena ahluwalia

Life is an eternal quest. Yet, not all those who wander are lost. 

Our journeys are journeys of seekers and wanderers, a journey inwards. In quest of our being, of clarity and truth.

I explore this notion in my work here. "The Portal of Quest" painting is from the 'Diamond Portal Series", one that I am currently working on.  In the Diamond Portal Series, I explore the moments of human emotions as seen through the lens of the diamond as a storyteller. You are invited to enter portals where subtle references exist but the story is completed based on your life experiences and desires. I hope that each time you see the work, a new set of questions, solutions and possibilities emerge. The qualities of diamond act as metaphors and hold the stories together.

Here are a few images, enjoy!
