Spirit, Mind, Soul
Being an Artist has led me on a interesting spiritual journey into Native Spiritualism to find answers to the "Big Questions".
As an artist, asking questions about the world came natural to me and gave my artworks meaning.
I am on a Spiritual Journey that blessed me with a Gift of Native American Traditional Art.
I was also at the time, researching connections between Living Beings and World Spirituality. I wanted to know the Grand Designer, Life Energy Source, God, The Great Mystery Spirit, Allah.
Was this world just made of material matter? Is the person inside me my soul or just brain signals creating the "me" inside. Or is the spirit consciousness non-local (not of this space time dimension).
I came to know we are all interconnected to a "Source" or spiritual energy.
This Spiritual World within ours that we can learn to see or experience.
What we think of as matter and space is also occupied by other dimensions or the "spiritual plane".
Part of my Spiritual Journey is asking...
Why are the fundamental Laws of Nature are Fine Tuned for this Universe to exist?
What are the Non Local connections between consciousness or soul, Dark matter, Dark energy, quantum phenomenon, symbiotic relationships, Intelligent Design and phenomenon such as instincts, intuition, Déjà vu and creativity.
This spiritual plane or “other side” is alluded to by many cultures and religions.
Native culture teaches that this world we live in is but a shadow or reflection of the other larger spiritual world. I think we all have a shared connection to this spiritual energy and because of that we are all part of a larger consciousness.
In this series of paintings I am portraying the unseen spiritual energy that is there.
The sky and underground are filled with unseen Non-Local energy.
The "Source" living energy fields preside on geometric dimensional planes are represented by flowing organic lines, linear dimensional colors and textures.
This is the "Real" but unseen world.
