"God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything." — Bede Griffiths

Rebirth was the first illustration of the Luminescent project whose original title was the "Goodness Series". The name was later revised and evolved into its current identity; Luminescent.

This piece came into existence after I was struck by inspiration last spring; while attending a design event organized by a friend, my mind wandered during a speech and the image of a blooming lotus formed. This vision was accompanied by the realization that I should use my skills to create imagery and symbols with positive connotation. The project idea was still rudimentary at the time, but a seed had been planted and was slowly growing in my mind. A few weeks later, I sat down at my computer desk and created Rebirth, the blooming lotus flower (also known to as Padma) admired in the East for its beauty, purity and spiritual significance.

At the time, I did not know this illustration would mark the beginning of the most important artistic project in my life. Prior to painting Rebirth, I had been searching my path as an artist; I found finally it in creating art which has deeper meaning and which can inspire others.

Rebirth also means surrendering to the divine in order for change to take place within ourselves. It means taking a leap of faith into the bright infinite. It signifies letting go of all resistance and finally becoming what you are were always meant to be; love and light in human form.
