"I see painting as an evocative magic, and there must always be a random factor in magic, one which must be constantly changed and renewed."
William S. Burroughs
THE HEART OF THE ART
All creations on these pages are various applications of digital painting. You are welcome to have a look at worlds with gods and angels, spirits and demons, heroes and villains, temptresses and sorcerors and anything in between.
At an exhibition in Bruges, Belgium, someone remarked "I drew form out of light". That’s true in a way as I always keep the focus on the light in my work, with the dark as complimentary substance for contrast and enhancement. Most of the time, when painting, I start out with a dark background and just add light and color in the process, the form gradually growing out of this.
I am very aware of and fairly intrigued with texture, the play of light and dark, the sheen and lustre of fabric, the suggestion of depth and how the patterns and noise in a texture can create an atmosphere. This is something I look or rather listen for in music as well.
Art, is Alche-mystical in essence, both in its creation and observation. The essence of life is growth, as soon as a thing completely crystallizes (and I am not talking about crystals now because they are very much alive ) it's dead. Even the highest of consciousness forms, in my humble opinion, still keeps evolving. There is no real ending. A change of form, or phase, or frequency, or perception, yes. Ongoing, everlasting, finding new ways of expression and learning from that - letting go, growing into new awareness, and having fun with it !
Re-invent yourself, your Life, your Art, and every now and then you will see the signs of what you are about to become, like the peacock colors that appear in the Alchemist's laboratory, creating the Philosopher's Stone, Transformation, Transmutation, Transfiguration, Transcendence.
I am constantly aiming to do just that; transform, transmutate, transfigure, refine both my technique and expressiveness. This gallery reflects the current journey. I do not know where it will lead me, but I do know that it will never stop.
Imagination will get you anywhere, said Einstein, and to quote Lon Milo DuQuette: "“It's all in your head -- you just have no idea how big your head is.”
The artwork here - it is the offspring of Imagination and Magick, the result of a Gordian knot stranglehold love affair with Art and The Art.
It calls you out - it raises questions, if not about the sanity of its author , then certainly about what else there is to see in the worlds, plural, beyond our usual senses.
I'm offering the snapshots, you go there.
