My perspective on Art

For me, Art is a conduit to instill something higher in humanity than what meets the eye.

My perspective on Art

In our times, more than ever before, as the old world has collapsed and the materialistic values upon which humanity relied have plunged, the artist needs to cultivate, to promote through life, through works of art, a spiritual vision for the impending new world. As Wassily Kandinsky has said, “The artist is not the spoiled child of life, for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live irresponsibly without duty. The work assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear.”

 

In a dark, resigned, and disintegrated world, the artist keeps the flame of inspiration and creation alive. They carefully and lovingly cultivate illumination, compose the disintegration of the old world, which resembles a lifeless shell, and the reconstitution of the New World. They infuse color into a colorless, uncreative world, functioning as a Priest of Beauty, a Transformer of reality. The artist knows that by transforming reality within themselves, they can also transform the reality that surrounds them.

 

The artist must continue to seek beauty, and express it through art. Beauty is that which emanates from an inner psychological necessity. Beauty is that which possesses inner grace and can only contribute to the evolution of consciousness and the improvement of the human condition. In this sense, the artist is nothing but an executor of the impossible, a small miracle-worker.

 

For me, Art is a conduit to instill something higher in humanity than what meets the eye. It is a channel for the soul to unite with the One, the Unique that simultaneously encompasses the Whole. Art chooses us; we do not choose it. The primary work of art we are called to create is nothing but the Self. We are the highest works of art. Therefore, the highest form of art is the art of living. Other forms of art are in the service of the art of living. They can function as auxiliary tools to elevate our lives to a higher level, beyond what the majority usually experiences. Our primary creation is the Self, the birth in our hearts. Art, in reality, has the role of birthing the New Man, someone who is united with the Spirit, who rises boldly, fearlessly, and selflessly from the world of matter, the world of formative reality, to the world of Essence beyond form.

 

Ι believe that the main role of Art in our time is to give birth to the New Man, a being that is united with the Spirit, someone who rises boldly, fearlessly, and selflessly from the world of oblivion and the self-imposed limitations of the darkness of matter, into the world of the True Essence of Light beyond form.

The primary function of Art for me is precisely this: the therapeutic aspect, one that serves humanity, while the fundamental essence of the word ‘therapy’, is to serve the divine. It has been expressed that in illnesses and social conflicts, the human being had fallen from the order of the gods, and in order to find a solution to a problem, to cure an illness, ceremony participation was required, only then, balance with the gods would be restored. And perhaps these ideas may appear outdated and out of sync with our times today. Yet, the central concept remains unchanged: that in serious problems and illnesses, something needs to come into balance. In reality, this involves the restoration of balance with the divine part within us, in other words, with our true Self. 

 

Art is capable of bearing, of giving birth through parents that she chooses, to lofty offsprings – in order to reveal, illuminate, reshape and recreate, all that is true. This is the challenge I have set for myself as an artist, that I will serve the true dimension of Art, the superficial is of no interest to me.

 

Welcome to the world of painting and art!
Art for me is a secret gateway to transition and communicate with the magical parallel reality, to breathe and reconnect with my soul's song. Through art I discover every time from the beginning the path to converse with a deep and invisible side of the world, to be able to transform darkness into light and pain into a path for rebirth and transformation
