by Gordon Lavender
The painting represents a time when the beatles studied transcendental meditation .
This search led him to delve deep into the mystical world of Eastern religions, especially Hinduism, Indian philosophy, culture, and music. Gordon Lavender is a British painter, from Liverpool, in whose work we can recognise a strong inspiration in Asian Koi painting and Koi art altogether. This inspiration of Asia, actually far East, Japan in particular is maintained through fresh, varied composition of a painting, which before else seduces you with its minimalistic beauty. There is no doubt that Lavender has stepped into a deep field of beauty and that his amplitude is a harvest of high inspiration and endless talent. Sometimes it might appear to you that his works communicate brilliantly with Pop Art, with Minimalism and of course with Fantasy. That is not an illusion,
