Below Above

Below Above


A visual exercise in seeing and looking beyond the surface.  Consider the interconnectedness of all things seen and unseen. That which is intutively sensed is as valid as that which can be taken hold of in your hands.

    I’m still studying all it’s vastness…my eye darts to one area then back across: below above–perfect!

    I knew I’d seen this before so I had to run to eva’senergyscapes to find it. I like what you have said here. Sometimes when I consider all that there is that we don’t know that is a possibility I have to pause and get a little breath. That is something I didn’t consider when I viewed this piece the first time. The incredible amount of color and multitude of shapes in this does lend to the idea of more and more. Thank-you for this view of your work.

      Hey Leslie. Grins. Breathing is a very interesting action when consciously engaged. I like more and more!

        I know, I know. Secret on me? When I was little and trying to grasp what death was, my Mother told me it was when someone stopped breathing. I think I was around 5. Well, Iremember trying to concentrate on breathing every chance I got for awhile! It’s tedious! Grins!

        Tedious–and yet very very useful for your imagination/mind workings. Oh Leslie–that’s a STORY that deserves more fleshing out. You care to write it?

        I took creative writing for awhile instead of the art classes. I could say things like the above but was horrible when I tried to “flesh” things out. I think I have writing dyslexia, but the memories come just not the words.

    Beautiful. I could stare at this for a very long time… it has a relaxing effect on me.

      Bryan, you relaxed? Now that’s a novel notion considering your never ending poetic flow.

    Cool — looks almost alive.

    This reminds me of your gravatar! Love the fact that it’s really colourful.

    this is a beautiful image! As above so below concept is also acredited to the Magician in the tarot. I’ve always seen the artist as a magician, I wrote a short dissertation about it. Art can go beyond paint with what it conveys to the viewer and what it makes them feel. What a lovely blog, by the way – I’ll be back! Thanks!

      Well HELLO Echo! I’d like to hear/read more about your thoughts on Art. Yes–it is not an act of random creation–or ist it? No matter. Oh and the Magician—I must say that lately The Hanged Man has been rather staying put in regard to me. Not sure what to make of it. This ‘hanged state’ is wearing out my patience. Thank you so much for visiting and enjoying yourself.
      Is your dissertation about Art online? IF so, please leave a link to it!

      O so glad you do! Love your kitty kitty too. Btw, if you’d like a print of the ‘painting’ just post so. Meow! I swear there’s milk and catnip around here some place. Here kitty kitty!
