Damien Hirst Painting

Damien Hirst Painting

Four days and five nights ...

If anyone ever tells you doing art is for lazy people, don't believe them ...

Art Dolls

Art Dolls

During my original voyage into primal magic - which is where primal art came from! - I happened across Voodoo and the idea that the original idea of "the creator" comes into being when you shape a humanoid figure from clay with your own fair hands ...

This is the start of many things including the art dolls. This is a repost of the original article from SH.com which wanted to be on this website - so welcome to my spirit friends on 1-art.eu :-)

1st Art

1st Art

Art is a very personal journey. And every so often, there are these priceless experiences that one really can't put into words. I guess that's the difference between painting and sculpting and writing about after the fact ...

At any rate, whilst working on the "Damian Hirst" symbol painting, I had a moment of revelation ...

The Sand Shaman

The Sand Shaman

Inspired by Will Taylor's new album, I found myself wanting to make a spirit doll (art doll) for the first time in a long time. I was surprised by this but also very happy because the process of making these little sculptures is nothing like anything else I've ever done.

So meet the Sand Shaman and his story ...

Overcome By A Painting ...

Overcome By A Painting ...

I've heard tell that as a painter, the holy grail is to "get a reaction from the audience."

Well I can proudly report that a person had a nervous breakdown over one of my paintings and was "overcome by the painting" to the degree that they spent about an hour hyperventilating, trembling and crying ...

Yes, well, what do I say to this?

It seems my art is different by design ...

Celebration Design

Celebration Design

The "Celebration" design for the 10th Anniversary EmoTrance Conference.

EmoTrance is an amazing modality; indeed there would be no 1-art.eu website without it.

For ten years, EmoTrance has been flying under the radar, being used as a modern research tool which has already brought about massive changes - well, we might as well call them what they are, a real paradigm shift in the theory and practice of modern energy work.

So the theme was, "It's time to let the genie out of the bottle!"

A Painting Painting Itself: Gold Fall

A Painting Painting Itself: Gold Fall

Alright so no painting is painting itself here literally. A canvas jumping out of the cupboard, sticking out it's little arms and legs, undoing the paint tube and with squeals of pleasure, beginning to apply Alizarin Crimson to themselves in long, slow strokes ... ;->

What I'm talking about here is a process by which some paintings "arrive" - like Gold Fall.

Classic Symbol Painting: The Traveller

Classic Symbol Painting: The Traveller

Just put this title down - that's funny. A "classic" symbol painting. A traditional symbol painting. The first one of those was in 2004, but I do know what I mean by that.

A classic symbol painting is created by movements of a hand holding a pen or brush in response to the instruction, "Give me something ..."

Genius Symbol Mandala

Genius Symbol Mandala

I love The Genius Symbols. They have brought immeasurable joy into my life, I have just had such a good time making different symbol sets, and eventually, I made a symbol game board, an acrylic painting on canvas.

I use it for special purposes and always regretted I couldn't take it with me when I went away to a conference or such; and when I came across a company who prints custom art scarves the other day, the The Genius Symbol Mandala literally jumped into my mind. But before we got started on that, there was the vector version to be done ...

Seahorse

Seahorse

Some time ago, I sent someone a The Gift and it was a Seahorse. First time that I can recall I had any dealings with this particular creature or metaphor, as the case may be ...

Here is my seahorse drawing, the symbol hybrid, and a seahorse vector version, plus a couple of cute animated seahorses and a seahorse to print out for coloring in.

Genius Symbols Public Demonstration Set

Genius Symbols Public Demonstration Set

I gave a short 15 minute presentation on The Genius Symbols at the AMT conference last year. Normally I draw the symbols live to show how simple they are and ask the audience to guess what they might be to demonstrate they are easy to learn, so that's what I did. This caused a certain gentleman to give me a set of canvases for Christmas and the idea/task to make a symbol set for group demonstrations. I did and here they are.

Storm In A Tea Cup

Storm In A Tea Cup

Well, technically speaking it's a volcano in a tea cup, or a glass coffee mug, but let's not split hairs here. It's a cup, it's storm and I had fun making it.

This is a model re-enactment of ...

SFX At The Console

SFX At The Console

Once in a while, it's time to update the self image - lol!

The picture of me that's widely used everywhere was taken in 2007, that's over four years ago now, and I've got a lot greyer and a lot fatter since then. Ooh time passes when you're having fun! So I thought I'll have me a new self portrait today, SFX at the console ...

Star Child Fairy Tale Illustration

Star Child Fairy Tale Illustration

The book of fairy tales, The Golden Horse, originally had for every story a symbol hypbrid painting as an illustration, a plate at the beginning of each new fairy tale.

But as full color publishing was deemed to costly by the publishing company, a different set of images was ordered from another artist instead. Now, with the publication of the Kindle & Ipad version of The Golden Horse, the original images in glorious technicolor have taken their rightful place alongside the stories.

Poem Dreaming Tree

Poem Dreaming Tree

Honestly! Some works of art seem to have a mind of their own ... This "poem dreaming tree" is elusive! First it went underground for over 7 years, never to be seen. Then when it was found again, it disappeared once more and after a lengthy search of all hard drives and external servers, re-discovered.

Haha! Now I shall post it here and it can't escape anymore - bad tree!

Digital Restoration: Fire

Digital Restoration: Fire

One of the most fascinating things I've learned about art is that art doesn't get better when the artist gets older. Any inspired work of art can't be bettered; it's perfect as it is and can't be improved upon. It's not a curve from being useless to getting good then great; real art doesn't work that way.

Which has many repercussions across time and space for the development of the artist.

Angel City

Angel City

There's some thing going on with angels at the moment, don't know what it is ...

Still, angels are a good thing so let's not dwell and instead, take a trip to angel city.
