THE NEW WORLD exhibition starts this Friday Nov 9th at 8 PM- 10 PM @ #6-200 Framing & Art Centre and continues to January 2013. Thank you to my sponsor Mr. Garry Green who's a great patron of my work and a personal friend.
THE NEW WORLD Is an exhibition of new abstract pieces born of ideas and inspirations from ancient philosophers such as Hermes, Plato and Proclus, Shamans, Freemasons and Nobel Prize winning Chemists- Kary Mullis (Dancing Naked in the Mind Field- thanks for the book Rand!), Anthropologists- Gary Granzberg & Jeremy Naydler (Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts-the Mystical Tradition of Ancient Egypt), Quantum Physicists and Systems Theorists like Irvin Laszlo and Neurosurgeon’s Eben Alexander (Proof of Heaven- A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife) and counter-cultural authors such as Daniel Pinchbeck (Breaking Open the Head and 2012- The Return of Quetzacoatl) who have all wondered, experienced and speculated. Such leaders in science and spirituality have conceived that we ourselves, our world and the metaverse are so much more than we can imagine. This vast new [and old] scientific and spiritual knowledge presents itself at a curious time of great social change, religious fundamentalism, potential environmental collapse, economic, financial and political upheaval curiously at a time of a “2012” mythos which ancient Mayans defined as a new time of revolutionary change. What to make of these opportunities, challenges, paradoxes and predictions? Perhaps we have to take pause and wonder that each of us has a responsibility in seeing with new eyes. What constitutes being human and being conscious? What is reality, life or death? At the root, what Divine Creative or Intelligent Force surrounds us and permeates us? If we dare to open our eyes, our hearts and minds, what will we see? And how will what we find change us? THE NEW WORLD suggests we must all expereince a personal gnosis to come into direct contact with the “numinous” as Psychologist Carl Jung called it, the transcendental essence of all that is. THE NEW WORLD won’t about come as result of waiting or wishing but rather by active intention to understand, dialogue, and expereince in a new and fundamentally different way.
I hope those who are interested can come on the gala opening, i also hope those who miss the opening come at some point (before the exhibition ends in January 2013) to take in visuals and ideas that cause them to think, seek and open.
