Exhibition In Celebration of Sikh Heritage Month
MISSISSAUGA: Kenyan-born artist Juss Kaur is bringing her distinctive, meditative artwork to Mississauga this month for an exhibition in honour of Sikh Heritage Month.
The exhibition, entitled “My Master’s Touch,” will take place from April 22nd to 26th at the Sikh Heritage Museum inMississauga. The artist invites viewers to interpret the particle nature of the universe through vibrant colours and a style combining art, spirituality, and physics.
“My ultimate goal is to hint at the illusionary nature of our world, while at the same time subtly implying that the universal spirit surrounds us,” says Kaur. “I hope to show that there is a divine presence in all creation.”
Kaur’s art composes images using the word “waheguru,” handwritten as a meditation to create a dotted, pointillist-like effect. A painting can contain between 500 and 20,000 wahegurus. Pronounced “wah-hay-goo-roo,” the phrase is similar to phrases like “Allah-Hu” or “Om” in other spiritual traditions. “Wah” means infinite, “hay” means “thou,” and “guru” means “higher self,” or the divine teacher within.
