Description In this painting I captured the way we could use mass beliefs to our advantage at the same time creating our choices. There are many many mass beliefs that are acting on us every moment. Some we express and some we do not. We are not even conscious of many of them showing their influence on us. When we study our actions and understand which particular belief is actually influencing those actions, we start to become conscious of them. Once we do, we can continue to reinforce the ones that are advantageous to us, while neutralizing others by acknowledging them. We can also make choices that defy these mass beliefs. Horizontal lines represent mass beliefs and our choices. Black represents all the mass beliefs that are existing in us without our conscious knowledge and green represents the same beliefs when we become aware of them. Red represents those beliefs that we choose to keep. Mustard represents our choices that we make beyond the mass beliefs and white represents our conscious living with chosen mass beliefs and conscious choices.
Brihte ' Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement At one point of my life, I felt stuck. It felt like I was sinking in quicksand and any/every kind of movement was making it only worse. As I stood still and wondered what was happening, I embarked on a strange journey that brought me experiences that answered every question of mine. Every painting that you see in my galleries is what I experienced/realized at that moment. Through them, I am able to express my journey as it happened. Nothing can beat the joy of that expression!!!!
