J C Rathnayake

Rathnayake’s art attempts to combat the increasingly cluttered world, where minds are constantly being bombarded by imagery and information at a speed that does not afford the time to process thoughts. The multiple copies of Buddha-like and people images ensure that the mind does not focus on any specific image in favour of using peripheral vision to see the whole, which leads to an uncluttered mind by giving it a much needed break from focused processing in favour of it getting an overall relaxing feeling from the paintings. Rathnayake's practice involves figurative and abstract painting on canvas.
