flower power 

Somedays you just need to stop and smell the flowers, and this is exactly what hälts did.

Here are some fotos from hälts moms secret magic garden, it takes a lot of work, care and attention to maintain a garden, this has been a great lesson for hälts and inspires him to put that kind of carr and attention into his art practice.

life is full of everything imaginable and unimaginable, taking the time to sit and let the human spirit express is a key to a healthy life

the path 

 Art is journey, it is all encompassing, always changing, one might even say transforming. In this lifetime there is only so much time, so small sacrifices are made in order to make healing, positive, meaningful art. What goes in is what will come out, and to be self aware is a vital part of the process. Tapping source and Nature exploration is necessary, while letting the subconscious be what it is, mindfully aware of how it  dances. Finding balance in a world with seemingly endless information is helpful, it is easy to be overwhelmed. There is an urgency to get things done because time seems fleeting and life demands, the essential practice is to breathe, ground and remain in a state of calm in the storm.  This is a daily practice that wavers and undulates, constantly learning and growing, this is the the path hälts is on.

a flower child in dark times 

I was talking to a friend today about some artist woes, the attempt to sustain art in a world that demands you to play by its rules, he simply said to me,

‘Dude I hear you. You are an artist making his way in a world that batters you. This is a storm now bro. Its gonna take time. You are confronted with a meaningless reality. Society tries to pound meaning into it for us. But resist bro! Make your own meaning. Im here as buddy.’

To this hälts replies Mahaloness, and a deep soulful thank you, carry on!

The following is a collection of hälts hybrid art, minimotion and soundscapes all made by hälts or at least composed by hälts because let’s face it we all influence each other, inspire each other and push each other, this is what makes life great rather than headlines news telling us it isn’t.

drala in BC

 Although the sun is always in the sky, what is it that causes you to look up and see that it is there? Although magic is always available, what allows you to discover it? The basic definition of drala is “energy beyond aggression.” The only way to contact that energy is to experience a gentle state of being in yourself. -‘Shambhala. The Sacred Path of the Warrior’ by Chögyam Trungpa

For the past little while hälts has been soaking up some BC magica, taking in as much as is humanly possbile while giving back to his elders, building a safe and sturdy path so they may move easily and confortably. The artistic flow enters new territory, gaining a new appreciation of the work of stone masons. Similar to painting, the act of mark making takes on 3-D form, brick to brick, stone to stone,  one step closer to final composition. There is a sense of fulfillment and happiness in this work, it will be interesting to see how this influences hälts artistic practice as he continues along the artists path.

The artist path, literally.

  

The inspector checking the pathway workmanship on a hot and sunny day.

  

Working in the yard making a path and one cannot but help be entralled by the sacred geometry.

  

Breaks by the lake put life to persecptive as BC soaks into my soul, or isnit th either way around, gratitude all around.

  

As the moon crosses sky so too does deer cross the Earth, as above so below.

  

The ‘wolfman’ painting by hälts including feathers, birch bark and acrylic paint. This painting portrays the effects of spending quality time in BC.

  

‘dancer on the lake’ a hybrid art by hälts, the first version of this series was projected in Louvre in Paris last summer, this a reminder that a small gesture can really go a long long way.

  

flower child at heart.

Mezcal shuffle

Sitting
Looking out the window
Ideas forming in mind
like sun kissed fluffy white clouds
floating in cobalt blue sky
dogs barking
smoke lingering
piercing light
squinted eyes
as Spirits walk amongst the living
presence
she kisses my lips
as sweet dew dangles on a green leaf
that ants eat
buzzards glide effortlessly above
highways of promise
passing those time forgot
Mezcal shuffle
a man beaten down
by the sun and his own penance
the car screeches to a halt
¡Tope!
