A pictures silence

1 Comment

Even though an image may conjure up an array of experience, the image itself is silent. This is interesting considering nearly all the work I make is made listening to the music or in some kind of busy, social environment. The sound I listen to really does enhance emotion, as well I find my concentration is heightened, the outside world melts away, and I think this is reflected in my output. I often wonder what the image conjures in the mind of the viewer, and what sounds they may hear even though the image is silent.

Buddhabear a painting that is based on an actual Grizzly encounter I experienced outside an electronica festival in BC, in a tutu of course. Do you hear the bear? The forest? The hum of a hummingbird?

The painting I made at the festival, Entheos, where I had my Grizzly encounter, I painted nearly 3 days straight, it morphed hundreds of times before ending at this stage, I gifted it to the land owner in exchange for the bear medicine I received there.

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
