Visionary Art Thread

Last edited Thu Apr 5, 2012, 02:53 PM - Edit history (1)

I dedicate this thread to all you wonderful souls who post here!! I usually lurk here but wanted to give back to you for inspiring me so many times, always at the right time, always with the right words--thank you.

Here is a list of my favorite visionary art websites--where I go for inspiration and good dreams

http://iasos.com/artists/ --very cool website, I just checked the new artists and they are worth a look.

http://godconsciousness.com/visionaryart.php

http://www.designsbywillow.com/site/new_home.htm

http://www.bearcloudgallery.com/ This man is amazing, he does an annual vision quest and then does a painting afterwards.

Peace.

4. Here are two of my favorite artists,

and I would definitely call them "visionary"

Alex Grey (you've probably seen his art used on magazine covers and elsewhere)

Mahmoud Farshchian - Most Americans have probably never seen Farshchian's work, and if so, they're really missing out

Here's an example:

Yes I have seen Farshchian's art--it is so dreamy and otherworldly. I don't know too many people familiar with him.

I've--always--wanted to go to Alex Grey's Chapel of Mirrors, I have his DVD and book of prints and they are so inspirational.

I posted it in the Lounge recently, but no one seemed to care. It just goes to show you that the Lounge in DU3 just isn't the same...

18. Yea a lot of fantasy art

Last edited Thu Jun 28, 2012, 12:36 AM - Edit history (1)

incorporates human form too, which can be really beautiful-but I leave off when it starts getting rough. Interesting that visionary art does venture into fantasy, sci fi and erotica a bit, all these genres overlap at some point --- like Frank Frazetta http://www.frankfrazetta.net/ Boris and Julie Vallejo http://www.imaginistix.com/ and Louis Royo http://www.luisroyofantasy.com/en/index.php?page=home --and so many others.

I used to buy art books like spectrum fantasy art--just for the cool stuff, but had to wade through increasing amounts of horror which is not my preferred genre.

I'm going to date myself and post my early favorite artists--this is the guy who started it all:

http://www.petermax.com/

Roger Dean



Roger Dean



70s art (note I couldn't find this artist name)


These artists caught my imagination when I was very young.

I was given a mandala coloring book and discovered that when I worked on these, it helped clear my mind. The chemo I was going through took a toll on my mind, yet doing these seemed to help me focus, memory and my attention span--like a meditation! Here's a couple of them I thought turned out cool.

I just came back here for some inspiration, and have been exploring this artists work. His art reminds me of aborigine art--and I love his collages that include text and music. Here is one of my favorites (hard to pick one--his work is very detailed) it is so colorful!!



Adolf Wölfli

LOL I was just pondering why he would do a drawing of scissors, and wonder if it had to do with the fact he does so much collage. They do look like a really good sharp pair of scissors, and he seems to be celebrating that! I have felt this good finding a good quality pen or set of pencils!! Yay!!

40. 3 of my artworks

Please look at my entire flickr file, but this page has 3 artworks on it.

1-Kali Durga riding her tiger and stomping on Ken Lay;
2-one of my first silk paintings, freehand, of a tree w/flowers on it and a dove on top;
3-a fresco I made of an angel watching a homeless man with an ironic quote above it from a famous american song.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/20612500@N02/page3/

If you get to the last pic on the last page, you will see me as I looked at age 17 about to go off to college.

Lots of very old family pics as well.

A lot of my art has a theme of a female witnessing injustice and either making it valid by seeing it (the angel and the homeless guy fresco) or righting the injustice (Kali Durga stomping on Ken Lay and the Enron "E").

52. What an excellent blog

and her discussion about her heirophant card design completely aligns with what I was meditating on just last night. There is so much polarization and stress in society right now that my instinct is to compartmentalize my relationships with people who share the same pursuits. To experience the world differently one's whole life, there is a constant need to discern what to expose and what to just stay quiet about. I am still learning this

I was compelled to look up this card, it is shown at this link:

Life as a gradual Unfolding of the Sacred, and think it is worth watching all the way through. He worked under Ernst Fuchs and knew Alex Grey.

59. I love art from the Amazon

thank you PufPuf23!! Pablo Amaringo was a great shaman and artist! Right now I am taking Amazon herbs and they are really helping me. I saw a shaman from Peru in the Fall and he said that the plants of the Amazon, being the oldest they are the wisest plants. They have seen the most global changes and environmental changes of any, so contain their chemical adaptations that helped them survive for millennia. It made so much sense.

The art that is communicated from these plants is so beautiful, and not surprising, that all life is like a tapestry woven together

Pablo was a unique man who left a great legacy in his work, and especially in the many young people he taught to paint, some of whom have developed into great artists.

Here is a photo I took of him less than a year before he passed:

60. Kathleen is my twin flame, I get to watch her create these.

She's an amazing artist. Her creative process is a combination of meditation, channeling and surrender. It's quite something to watch a piece germinate, grow, morph, spin, pirouette and suddenly lock on.

I'm blessed beyond measure.

Edited to add: she's very active on Facebook, that's where all her art is first released into the world. If you're a FB person, shoot her a friend request.

61. Kathleen's latest work, and a poem it inspired



untangling the woven

by
jim fry

2012.05.06

from the shadows across my experiences, i fell from grace
innocence faded, as i jaded with each collected trace
in deep pain, i vomited and projected as i fled
my soul not seeking the food it was fed

my salvation seemed elusive
and hampered by becoming reclusive
as i withdrew from majesty and interrelation
seeking relief and solace from my dark interpretation

when only a flicker of my light remained
as my soul screamed from the pain unnamed
loving energy enchanted my deeper perspective
as i embraced healing as critical and essential objective

without my own guidance recognized, i sought tools
embarking upon dark journey without definitions or rules
holosync, hemi-sync, journeying drums and past life regression
all valued in limited measure, nurtured and dissolved heavy depression

soul retrieval and gestalt therapy each further support
as i disconnected from the media's ghastly evening report
removing the mercury and abandoning allopathic faux care
further detoxified, rectified and electrified to point of feeling fair

yet, ever more was revealed with each layer excavated
and the deepest conditioning was indoctrination related
these roots were deepest and required extensive re-framing
of the nefarious presumptions, beliefs, truths and memes remaining

with some of these webs untangled, i still feel mangled
yet now as love peeks through, the balance is much easier to do

ms. may, as your art activates further healing,
you receive my deepest gratitude for the feeling!

62. What an exquisite

expression. Both the art and then the poem. Is this speaking to everyone the way it speaks to me? This poem describes this life, these times--and mirrors back to me that so many of us are going through--this re-weaving, re-membering--together. Thank you GliderGuider!!

63. Remembering

Gurdjieff called the act of deprogramming yourself (seeing through your own conceptual filters, stopping your inner tapes) "self-remembering". Because in order to remember who you have always been, you need to deprogram who you think you are...

I'm so glad you're resonating to Kathleen's art! I'll make sure to pass this on to her.

65. I just now decided

to dive into your blog. I *asked* for more light--and this week---I have been deluged with books, events, stumbling across seers, insight that is so right-on (and Kathleen's art and your poem today!!!!!!!!!!!!!)--and I just wish I could clone myself so I can make enough room for this GIGANTIC download!!

This information about deprogramming--to me is not only mental but I am getting that LIGHT itself, being conscious, HAS the information needed to feed our cells and help them reweave themselves in accordance with the environmental changes. (I hope my writing is clear) Much of my focus is transforming my cells--and ALLOWING it in, staying vigilant about what stories I tell myself and how often my conditioning comes up. I actually had to move from the East Coast to help me shift, for me it was hard to do there.

I am soooo grateful for everyone here--some days I think I don't want to return to DU--it can be pretty brutal, but ASAH keeps me coming back!!!

I was at a Moonrise drumming circle yesterday!! There are so many young souls who really get what is going on, they are shining SO brightly!! Last week I saw Shakti Tribe and danced with everyone, celebrating life. For me this balances out everything--to remember to celebrate now and then--sending out love, healing, peace and compassion!!!!:

Here is a sample--enjoy!

I found this guy Jack Haas --who has some very cool art and writes about shifting to another level of existence. I have not been able to post my favorites from his gallery--I think he has encrypted them so I cannot make them bigger:

72. Huichol Indian Art

of Mexico is shamanic art from people that have remained isolated from outside influence--their yarn art is created by pressing beeswax onto wood and then pressing colored yarn on top of that. I love the otherworldly feeling and universal ancient symbolism that seems to communicate on a deeper level than our rational minds.

Here is a website of beautiful yarn paintings!

77. I've always considered science and space cartoons

to be visual art When did Felix wake up in class? When the cartoons started--wooohoooooo!! (Alan Parson's helps) --stick with it--it gets better



This one is a very cool depiction of space travel! Sometimes it's good to get a little perspective--and like an old friend used to say "You know what I think, I think we're just a tiny part of a giant chair leg or something"

79. Maura Holden




Enlightenment of the Dominators by Maura Holden
Oil on panel / collection of the artist

From her website:

Today there are more talented fantastic and visionary artists than I ever thought I would see. It is a truly fabulous time to be here. For one thing, the movement is global, largely thanks to the internet. Artists with e-mail can communicate and send pictures around the world easily and instantly. Now, regardless of country and connections, we are all on a more level playing ground, and art lovers have a better chance of seeing the work of great artists who are unrecognized and/or of modest means. Of course, some of us are very enthusiastic about using the web tool, and some of us would rather just paint. Just painting was always my preference? Only in the past six months have I learned to use a computer and cobble together a simple website — and from most accounts people believe I have suddenly fallen from the sky! Out of the blue, my work is accessible to many more people; instantly I am able to communicate with other artists, art lovers and people in the industry; the results have exceeded my every expectation.

82. I'm always around!

Though, with limited access at work, I don't post to DU so much, and then I'm too tarr'd when I get home to do much online, either. I'm kind of surprised I've posted today at all, as I'm running on fumes right now. Only a little sleep last night due to my a/c being out. Fortunately, it's working tonight, and I'll be able to get to bed earlier

Of course, there's still far more in this thread than I can give enough time to, and one reason why I like to see it active. Plus, we've got newer members perusing here and that many more to offer their tastes in art

83. Sacred Geometry

Thank you Kentauros--this is an awesome site, with a lot to read:

Geometry is a vast field of study and Sacred Geometry is a term used to indicate a particular field where the qualitative as well as quantitative elements are addressed. Other terms for this study include:

• ancient geometry: many ancient traditions used this form of geometry
• organic geometry or bio-harmonic geometry: the geometry of nature
• archetypal geometry: illustrates the self-organizing forces of creation
• classical geometry: all can be reduced to divisions of circle and sphere
• philosophical / theosophical geometry: the nature of creation
• universal geometry: because it pervades the universe
• inter-dimensional geometry: functions on all levels of creation

Sacred geometry is a universal language that describes the inner workings of nature and the intrinsic order of the universe. It is the natural sanction that unites all forms of life… from microbes, plants, animals and humans to the motions of the planets and stars.



-Revitalization


-Attraction

85. I did skim a page or two of his site.

I only knew about him for the videos he did with Goldman's music. And, I've been reading about Sacred Geometry off and on for the past decade, and possibly longer without knowing what it was. I'll definitely have to delve into it deeper.

There's an excellent (and fairly short) book on the subject that I highly recommend. Simply titled, "Sacred Geometry" by Miranda Lundy, and published by Wooden Books. There's a companion book that's quite good as well called "Platonic & Archimedean Solids - The Geometry of Space" by Daud Sutton. Both books give all the basics and then follow those rules into more complex shapes and patterns.

And if you really want to research it, try this site: Arabic Geometry (1st of three pages)

Think that'll keep you busy for another hour or so?
