Description Earth to Cosmos connection, man/woman/ black/white, Human form as part of the earth and in relation to the Moon and outer space as a continuam (in the 3rd dimension).The himalayan Cobra (Karma) like a violin of delicate music, if you step on it breaks (& bites you) to respect it is to garner great power (MUSIC) and so we stand in the perfect Now Tao Omm energetic flow of circumstance being physical and spiritual all at once (like it or not).This painting is large (4ft by 5 1/2 ft) and is quite commanding, yet relaxing also. It has a peaceful composition that flows in a relaxed and gentle way.The figure is androgynous and the landscape is a typical scene of nature but just with the muted colors of sky blue and a stark black & white that gently shades into each other.The head is almost transparent in a classic outline, the knee is three dimensional, with a simple paintstroke. The image relaxes the viewer witha sense of assurance that all is in Divine order and we are connected to source by way of our actions (handy dandy doings) and the powerful snake is ready to lick us or bite us as we watch our step in our Earthwalk...
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....
