Description Three sperms in (a tug of war) discussion over the destiny of one fertile egg. This painting was first unveiled in a special ceremony at Paulines Off Bdwy restaurant in 1995 and later used as a therapy/meditation tool for healing the lower abdomen and re-productive organs in hospitals and private homes.This is actually a healing mandala done for the curative therapy. It speaks to the unconscience in all of us, as the triangle is a solid structure of our cosmic patterning. It re-inforces the white light awareness within and gives us a place (yellow) to sit quietly. The playful eternity symbols weave in and out of each other in a unique display of inter- woven possibilities. It looks like the blue/green/red(primary colors) 'sperms' are pulling the apex of the triangle into shape... the red one seems to have grabbed the black dot/spot for a new development to evolve.Surrounded in a (divine) gold field the painting has an exciting yet calming effect. It's dynamic without violence and has a gentle seductive way of leaving lasting impact that is relaxing with out a forceful stroke that demands attention. The oval shape (in orange) lends itself to the re-productive organs in a gentle way.
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....
