Samsara by Caia Matheson


Samsara is linked to the karma theory, and refers to the belief that all living beings cyclically go through births and rebirths.

The term is related to phrases such as “the cycle of successive existence”, “transmigration”, “karmic cycle”, “the wheel of life”, and “cyclicality of all life, matter, existence”.

The Saṃsāra is viewed as the cycle of rebirth in a temporal world of always changing reality or Maya.
It also refers to the theory of rebirth and “cyclicality of all life, matter, existence”, a fundamental assumption of all Indian religions.

The painting shows the roots of the trees visible which depict our tethering to the earth. The tree foliage is also depicted as dappled light which refers to rebirth. I chose trees as they have their own life cycle from conception (seed), to birth (sprout), to infancy (seedling), to juvenile (sapling), to adult (mature), to elderly (decline), and finally to death (snag/rotting log).

The painting “Samsara” is my interpretation of the cyclicality of all life, matter, existence as a visual representation.
