In Shell - The peace and Calm within

Meeleng Claxton -  Artist for Peace and Calm

Within a Shell

Often, we think  that  animals with a shell as an external covering have protection from any danger. In today's society whereby there are unending chaotic schedules and commitments, we human too wish that there is a shell for us to hide in  and protect us against the storms of life.   .
As an artist, my message to the world is through my deep thinking process of peace and calm. Over the years, I hv observed and studied animal (  Lagomorpha ) behavior, and come to the conclusion that they live an extremely peaceful  and loving life. While conceptualizing my series of artwork, my artist statement is that Peace and Calm should be an  essential part of the human centric system " Within  a Shell" portrays  the bunny seeking peace and calm, holding a lotus bud and feeling very secured within the shell. Thus human centric balance is achieved!
