Beautiful Art on this page.
Hi.

Regarding uploading art (in a thread for example), there is an "picture" button option in your reply window that prompts you to link to another image already online (your own personal website, for myspace page, for ex.).

Good luck

I take images of reality and create artforms from them.
My first image on the prior page as part of the "sonoluminescent series'
is NOT created from fractal programs, it is actual electric light.

Other mediums


Garden of Compassion






I like to create geometricities from the fractal Nature we experience,
and in this image an octagon is splitting open to reveal
the six sided star of david

Clouds in Heaven

Is this thread only to post "positive" art?
Or is it also allowed to post art with serious topics?

Hey Lear,

I try to hold the viewer's eye by giving it something to look at, until the mind kicks in, forms thoughts, and derives meaning. As a painter, I'm constantly divided about how much of the underlying idea of a painting needs to be explained to the viewer for the viewer to "get it". In the end though, the art always gets filtered through the viewer's consciousness, and "positive", "negative", "bad", "good", "serious or not" (in short, "meaning") is always the province of the viewer's mind. Art like beauty is subjective.

I'm not sure whether or not the following quote from my "Mindsnapper" series (see "Burning Monk" early up in the thread) will shed some light on the thoughts behind my work, but I'd like to share it with you:

"Mindsnapper Series is a group of paintings comprising a broad range of influences. The overarching theme is that human consciousness is both a progenitor and a product of local and global events; and that this "internal" and "external" force, respectively, are distinct vital systems of a single, universal organism. Mindsnapper reaches toward the prospect of an emerging civilization-mode rooted in this "universal" perception-- one largely powered by light-based energy. Here the concept of "illumination" is approached, both from a consciousness and a materials perspective. "

My avatar is a stippling that I did of some white tigers out of a magazine. I like stippling because you can make a picture that looks like a black and white photo without photoshop. I prefer the old fashioned method. Here's a pencil sketch of what I think I will look like when I'm older. I googled some nerd pictures and came across this one and I drew it.

Standing 6ft x 4ft, Giant-Slayer is a painting derived from the fifteenth century bronze sculpture of David by Donatello. In Giant-Slayer, David has been transformed into a pictogram, whose torso and white head hover in the mists, at the apex of a pyramidal composition. Emerging from the spacial blackness of David's mythic figure is a wave-pattern that wraps around the mammoth head of the slain Goliath. The wave-pattern references the electromagnetic spectrum, whose multiple radiation frequencies include a small segment that's detectable to the naked eye as visible light-- which gives rise to our visual world of forms. Embedded within this radiation lasso, Goliath's head is painted with a relatively true likeness to his actual head in Donatello's renaissance masterpiece. Here the representational head serves a duel metaphor. On a material plane, it depicts a physical world, and the old, "institutional" guard; and-- in contrast to light-- recalls a climate of non-renewable energy modalities and their associated power structures and Geo-political frameworks. On a spiritual plane, the massive, illusionistic head embodies a world of Maya or illusion; as well as the psychological conditions that contribute to separation, conflict and chaos. Through the language of Giant-Slayer, the traditional story of David and Goliath is meant not to be subverted or its essence debased, but rather to extend its narrative relevance into the dawn of the 21st Century.

i think i am going to have to carve a potatoe
in a triangle shaped,
and, press it myself

i saw this, in my 3rd NDE

this huge condor
and, this white eagle
was flying out of its heart

and, there were 3 rings
that were shaped like triangles

i am going to sent this light encoded langauge out
see what happens

last time, 12 paintings manifested themselves

you can see the first one, in my photo album

11 things in this master-piece

then, i think, i can eXplain a lot of things

Most of you know what an Ent is,
from the Tolkien trilogy

I do a lot of hiking here in the PNW
and as such I go to a lot of unusual places,
in virtually mythological deep forest and high mountains.
Often, natural spirits abound and the older Trees
will talk to you.
Most are quite friendly,
but sometimes you run into a fierce Ent.

This one is about a 700 year old Cedar Ent
near Mt Baker, my avatar.





edit

and so Nature reveals an imposing and scary spirit within the Cedar Ent,
with the reverse coloration image.
This may seem to be a fearsome and even a diabolical figure of darkness,
but on the contrary,
the Ent merely reflects the Absolute Fierceness of Nature itself,
and still exists in absolute symbiosis with the Forest creatures and plants,
and stands like a Forest God in all presences.





cheers
V
