|Simulated Akashics, 17X22", Mixed Media, 5/3/11|
The Akashic record sort of spells out the very first encoding of the reality we all inhabit, and everything about it. Examples of this direct interfacing with the creator are found in the holy books of all religions, from Danial's interpretation of the 'writing on the wall' for the idiot King Belshazar, to Mohammad taking dictation, to Gautama accessing every detail of all his incarnations, and so of course he was the Buddha.
Now I ain't no New Ager, and Madam Blavatsky scares the crap out of me, but this is cool--especially if you bypass all the crazoid nonsense for the past 4,000 years, which essentially takes us back to the Vedic sources--a bunch of rishis staring out into space and writing down stuff (the ponderous Vedas). I mean, the very idea of all this lights me up. What were they seeing? What do you see? All I see is dust, which is actually fun to watch. But never in public.
This is another mixed media piece using sanded mortar and white glue mixtures, acrylics, acrylic-latex--the standard goop--colored pencils and oil glazes with Liquin--hardboard panel.
