Passport to Hypnogogia.

Passport to Hypnogogia.

πŸ™‚ Working title “Passport to Hypnogogia”.

Spent the last 14 days working on this picture and I think I’ve pretty much finished it this morning. I may have said this before but this picture is now my favourite. I think because it incorporates many of my interests, experiences and even artistic ideas for fineliner shading that I’ve discovered over the last 3 years.

It’s 550mm X 340mm (Golden Rectangle) and sits nicely on A2 paper. ❀

I will scan the picture when I have a few pennies and post some better pics if anyones interested. I could also make some prints available too. I think I will do a picture with some explanations of the symbols too. The original is available.

Let me know what you think of it. Feedback is really important to me and can really change my direction when it comes to trying new pictures. πŸ™‚

The Art of Plato.

Platonic Space.

PLATONIC SPACE

Its been a challenging week completing this picture. I am so proud of it though given the circumstances I am in. I started it a few days after my operation. Its been quite tricky knowing where to rest my drawing board given an open wound where I would normally rest it. However it represents my transformation from being very, very poorly to still actually quite poorly. Recovery takes time aparently.

Still proud of this picture though. I have laid out the platonic solids in a fibonacci spiral and made it look pretty! As usual all of my work is available to buy. Even the Originals are up for grabs. Here.

Some close ups.

“The Church of Synchronicity” What was I thinking!?

So it has occured to me during conversations with others mainly on facebook, that I rarely explain my Art, its meanings or anything like that. The reason for this is it feels kind of personal and I’m not very good at explaining it. However I should try. I will talk about my picture “The Church of Synchronicity” to give you idea of what goes through my head.

The symbols and themes of my Art are my passions. Hermetic/Egyptian knowledge, Sacred Geometry, Consciousness, a living Sun, cycles of high and low ages, Sirius, Binary Orbits that sort of stuff and more. And I want to learn how to encompass this information into my pictures. But as I’m newish to this I dont know how to do it yet properly. So in the above picture I wanted to just squeeze in some themes.

I had an urge to try and combine old megalithic structures and those great big gothic cathedrals. So I threw in Stonehenge there (also a representation of pi) and built the church around it. It’s made up of Stonehenge (Stonehenge is decorated with the Platonic Solids and Zener Symbols) and the sun rising above it. The 2 triangles above the henge represent the left and right hemispheres of the brain and also create 2 obelisks out of the henge which you find at the entrances of ancient egyptian temples. What would be the stained glass window has 12 suns on it marked half way by the Sun on the Cross to represent the summer solstice. And then there’s the 2 snakes heads poking over the top! It also commerates a year of being an “Artist” so as you look into the cathedral/henge you see 1 candle cunningly disguised as an Obelisk.

There’s also a morse code message in there too. Clearly a cry for help. πŸ™‚
