Close to Earth Close to Heaven 1999-2000
Mixed media on canvas
Towards the end of the 2nd Millennium and the beginning of the new one, in the middle of a post modern era, I felt, on one hand, concerned because of the harmful and cumulative influences of social, political and environmental contamination, and on the other hand I cherished the "being". The "wholeness" of the world concentrated creative energy which has led to a creative deed.
This creation was born out of observation at geological and archeological resources in different places around the world, far into the distance of ancient civilizations.
A special reference was devoted to the ritual ceremonies concerning life and death.
The intensity of the experience has created a synthesis between “Heaven and Earth”, which led to internal observation and to an outbreak of creation.
The visible result is spirituality within the material expressing, among other things, an amorphous, cracked, primordial foundation, leading to infinite circular movement of space, light and motion.
