The Sri Lankan lotus flower is an ever-present and potent symbol in local culture, religion and in vernacular design. As a natural phenomenon in Sri Lanka, the lotus pond is a feature seen everywhere from civic architecture and landscape, to stately residences, traditional homes, and humble temple compounds. Kesara’s fascination with botanics extends to this paradigm of island wildlife. The lotus flower grows in the dark, murky depths of ponds and swamps, to emerge and unfold a pristine blossom.
“This series captures the many faces of the lotus, chronicling the complex and wavering personas of its subject. Each blossom, at a different stage in its life, takes on such expressive and dynamic silhouettes. Such ever-changing forms and contortions of beauty. All made the more stark by the dramatic backdrop of obsidian void, much like the murky waters from which it emerges.”
