explorations (a Southern journey suppliment)

Leave a comment

I have been rewiring my brain through artistic practice for the well over ten years and yes there has been major growing pains along the way, and yes there has been hurt, yes there has been rejection, isolation and periods of self loathing, self doubt, anger, depression and yes I wanted to quit more than I care to remember. So what keeps me going, what is driving me to continue? Is it morphic resonance? Is it stupidity? Is it instinctual? Is it from inside or outside? The answer is I don’t know. The fact is I am like an arrow, once released it cannot return the bow.

-explorations includes research trips, my Southern journey is a self funded operation to explore the southwest regions of Mexico and to visit with friends. There is a ritual to my exploratory nature, one such example is the documentation of the in-between moments.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
