DescriptionChrist Mandala Tree of Life with Yin Yang & rainbow colors effecting awareness of the sacred geometry, transmitted in every rain drop and snow flake, a different hexagram pattern, as people who bear different faces yet spring from the same source of Divine energy...God incarnate on the third dimension is the message of Y'shua (Radical rabbi Jesus) who was tortured and killed by the authorities (Roman Rule) as a threat to their power when people awaken to their own soverign power. It's all about love and the rest is ego confusion. So the Jews rejected him as the Messiah, as predicted by Moses - even though he was from the line of David and did indeed effect dramatic change in people world wide not only because of healing miracles but by the message of love & no enemy, even the arresting soldier's ear was healed. Yea as they tortured him, he said 'Forgive them, they know NOT what they do' This is what we are actually all about, love truth and light but we live in a free will universe that is also the Devil's playground and the Devil is in the White House pretending to protect US but focused on corporate profits and armament sales for warfare. It is also a vainglorious cabal of evil selfish greed that nurtures a multi-billionaires lair versus the needs of people. Just compare the paranoid D.O.D. budget to H.E.W. Arts, Farmers, etc. a Shocking & Awful blitz upon the population in a time of unprecedented foreclosures and strife. This painting is huge, 4ft by 8ft and stands up as a portal where the sunsets/rises and dark turns to light.The base of the tree has the holy trinity triad and the cross (as above so below) has the Tarot symbols at it's 4 points as a nod to the 4 directions and elements East Air Sword, South Fire, Club, West Water Cup, North Earth Pentagle and the other two directions (Indigenous consensus ceremoiny) is up to the sky and down to the (Center) of Earth. We are (all) at the cross roads of 'God' in human form maintaining a joy ride Earth walk.
FRANK CRAVEN, New York City Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I was born in NYC but grew up in Hidden Hills California (with a horse and pony)
1968 MLK/RFK shot Vietnam etc. My folks took me and sis (Patricia) from the top of Ireland to the bottom of Portugal and settled in Barcelona Spain.
There I studied art with Kieth Patterson and worked alongside the Catalan
artists Carles Briega Bonbon and Salvador Dali to find my own paradigm and school of thought.
I have exhibited at The American Institute of Barcelona and various other galleries,
restaurants, discos and yoga centers...painting wall murals and cielings.
I re-live my italian renaissance lifetime as church muralist and take it to the next level as an ongoing intergalactic ambassador gridding the planet with light and introducing the new merkaba spin, healing mandala art work for hospitals and individuals. Ofcourse I have canvases and sketchpads full of fascinating stories that answer my query about life and the life in between our Earthwalks.
I do not do art, art does me...suddenly I am attacked and find myself in a zone that relinquishes common sense duties, so I don't worry about marketing or professional politics - I make money as an actor, writer, musician and sometimes as an artist but I can only paint when my muse(s) crank a swift kick in my butt. Art does me, I don't do art....
