An Exhibition of Art that is created as Ritual, Interpersonal Transformation, and or Gateways of Consciousness.
There is a somewhat hidden legacy of the great artists throughout history that have explored the transcendent through their art. The Spiritual in Abstract Painting from 1890-1985 offers a series of exposés illuminating the explorations by artists such as William Blake, Malchevich, and Mark Rothko into the mysterious realms of metaphysics and beyond. They all illuminate the potential of the universe and its symbiotic relationship with human nature. The new sciences are also revealing the mysteries of what the ancients knew through holistic systems and Quantum theory. Jung offers springs of hope to my ideal of being a visionary artist. “We see that [the visionary artist] has drawn upon the healing and redeeming forces of the collective psyche that underlies consciousness with its isolation and its painful errors: that she/he penetrated to that matrix of life in which all men/women are embedded, which imparts a common rhythm of human existence, and allows the individual to communicate his feeling and his striving to mankind as whole.” (Jung). This exhibition explores contemporary artists, who see their ART as objects of power. For millennia, indigenous traditions, humans have used objects in creative ways to gain wisdom, heal sickness, avert suffering, and navigate life.
Curators: Award winning Transformative Artist and Educator Lisa Rasmussen M.F.A. and Transformative Artist, Ceylan Fadiloglu, M.A.
