Description A Healing Mandala to bring balance , invoking the violet flame brings healing and balance. This is another version of Le croix Du St. Germain, the Maltese cross with a silver triangle intersecting a gold triangle to form a hexagram with a yin yang inside to respect the electro magnetic force fields of polarity and opposition working together, painted in 1997 as a moral compass (for the White House, during the sexual scandal impeachment) it serves as a major marker and guide post to indigenous ways and the basic tenent of moral correctness in a conflicted world. A reminder of the convergence of the elements and 6 directions Sky/morningEast, Fire/Afternoon/South, Water West/Evening earth/Night/North Sky above outside, Earth below insideand our ability to spin in harmony and so we make music after our salute. All snowflakes arte in adifferent hexagram pattern, so we as individual drops of water, springing from the same divine source, are connecting to the sacred geometry of our true self, a product of the elements reconfigured in human form.
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....
