when in the forest one forgets self importance
to fine oneself is to lose oneself
For todays post I have chosen 8 selections from the hälts art archives, each piece an integral part of a puzzle, documents honouring true self, expressions of heart, mind and soul.
-from magic bus murals to ink on paper, there is no surface I will not try, and thats a large part of artistic practice, trying new things out and exploring the vast ocean of creativity within and all around.
The healing associated with the act of witnessing art is an area of research I am very interested in.
-the following is 2 white Taras I painted in succession to one another for art patrons, although I may be far from the conventional idea of a ‘Buddhist’ nor do I presume to be an overtly religious person, I do believe this imagery, inspired by my friend Romio Shrestha (Master Tibetan Thangka painter) has similar vibrational qualities as the sound of ‘Aum’ and other Buddhist meditation mantras. This is not a new idea, artists such as Mark Rothko and Bryce Marden have had similar ideas in terms of art’s capacity to heal, this is a pathway I find myself going with.
