Richard Kanter, New York Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement Hi and welcome to my page:
Welcome to Fall in the States. I completed a successful show this past summer and am looking forward to more shows upcoming. As we move into the season of Thanks and Winter, I am grateful to announce that I was offered an opportunity to show my choice of "Unfolding Seed" in See.Me digital display this December, 2013 for "Art Takes Miami"!
For me Art reflects divinity- pure creative force. As an artist it all begins with the empty canvas and a meditational awareness. (Nothingness which gives space for creating and re-creating movements of energy) What is sought is to see again - reflections of oneness, perhaps. Perceptions that weave together a glowing tapestry of Love. What is it to observe oneself? Perhaps (The artist) a bit literally and figuratively is drawn to beauty that moves through in a body of waves. In qauntum detail, our science is revealing that we as energetic beings are composed of particles and waves like light itself. We are the stuff of stars. For this artist, art is color and dynamics of shape, texture and form at play with light. All matter breathed in and art breathed out. Art brings us form and substance in harmonic stillness.
By placing faith in the art, the art becomes faithful -- mine is uniquely guided by my interests and passions for meditation and mystical traditions and the amazing power of color and light! Each print connects to the colors of life force energy and reflects a love for "drawing in light" -- a relaxing and empowering journey of transmitting and translating the beauty of hidden vibrations that exist all around us.
Many prints are designed to be turned and rotated until fitting to one's heart's content. There is no right or wrong way -- simply a pleasure of play. The more you enjoy the more you see ....
It is my desire to communicate through this gallery that even with all the upheavals in our personal, professional, local, regional and global worlds that the universe gifts each of us an ability to see beauty everywhere.
Through the expanding "re"-combinations of color , texture and light one may become aware of subtle positive changes in how one feels physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
With the hecticness and chaos of life may these images support the desire for connecting to personal balance from inside and out.
