The lotus flower is with the scum and the water,
but it remains untouched by any pollution. II1II
Raag Maroo, Mehla 1, Ang 990
The lotus flower grows up through murky waters whilst its roots sink deep into the mud. It reaches towards the light and blooms into a beautiful flower, floating atop the water, remaining level and untouched by the mire below.
Kamal will see Tutti Arts visual artists come together with the Sikh community to explore the lotus flower and its place in Sikh culture. The artists have all faced adversity but, like the lotus, they strive for the light and create beauty through their art.
Tutti has also invited artists Daniel Connell and Amardeep Shergill to create works in response to the lotus.
