Energy Art With Silvia Hartmann
Being Too Literal?
"You are too literal!" is a favourite put you down among arty folk. It is a variant on the "Fear of the Obvious" which I have written about and ranted over for many years now.
Essentially, art students and literary students are entrained to become blind to the obvious, and the literal, by being punished for being obvious and literal.
This leads to a mental movement that becomes quite literally (!) the psycho-path.
On a cool October night, I was drinking red wine and there were some people about who were interested in energy art, but didn't know much or anything about it.
Here is a truly multi-dimensional project for modern energy artists - The Bowl of Blessings. Here, we bring together art and magic, energy and intention, creativity and craft to end up with a single "installation" which serves as a totem in its own right, but can be used for all manner of magical purposes just as perfectly as it can sit by itself on a plinth in an art exhibition. Oh, and of course, you can play with it. Age range - 3 to 300. Awesome. x
What is sacred photography? To answer that question we need to go back a little way, to what happens in a magical photography session between the photographer and their subject.
It's been said that abstract art "enables the exploration of yet undiscovered inner territories of the viewer’s brain."
Yes ... abstract art is good for your brain. And perhaps even for your mind ...
In 2009, I created The StressFish for a website which was to give people quick anti-stress tips and modern energy based stress information. As is so often the case, the StressFish was years ahead of its time. Things happened, until in 2015 the stress challenge was approached anew with the GoE's MODERN Stress Management programs. In 2016, The StressFish retired (as he was cured of stress and now swims in a life of success!) and the articles transferred to GoE.ac. Still, The StressFish was good fun and much loved, so here is ...
The Mens have their own kid's book!
Welcome to "The Adventures of the Mens" by Silvia Hartmann.
I've met some amazing artists in my time - but I've never met one yet who wouldn't have loved what we do at The Guild of Energists. Here are my top five reasons why I think artists (real artists!) should join the GoE.
7 important things you need to know about the care and feeding of the mens, if you have mens in your life.
I found this article in the archives which describes "The Artist's Prayer" - the artist's contribution to change. This is clearly Art Solutions, not "art therapy as you know it, Jim" where the experience of pain simply gets regurgitated, or the problem/s simply get re-stated, yet again and ad infinitum.
I could talk of this for hours; over to the aspect, 2003.
So Boaty McBoatface is "serious science" - fair enough so. But it got immense publicity, and now, here's an opportunity - if folk can get their heads out of their ... ahm ... "serious science."
As someone commented, children would love this. I say the Adventures of Boaty McBoatface would make a fortune in movie rights, merchandising and delight an entire generation of kids and beyond. You could build another 500 ships with the money you could earn from this. Well, here's my Boaty McBoatface - BEFORE they can throw the copyright book at me! Enjoy :-)
So here we have the Magic Eggsercise - an egg, Art Solutions style, to empower a project or a goal. The egg is of course, a super-metaphor and works particularly well with the topic of projects and goals that have begun but have not yet "hatched" fully.
A lovely energy art exercise that combines conscious attention, art - and magic :-)
Created Easter 2016 for the Energy Art group.
Ah ... the mysterious mens! Are they art or are they magic? Are they tools or are they toys? Where did they come from and where will they go? These and many other questions ... :-)
Ein Objekt aus der Zauberwelt - an object from the magical worlds of energy. Based on the Daily Diamonds, this is an object designed to remind us of energy.
Three Energy Art Solutions images/paintings on the topic of New Beginnings, November 2015.
1 - Life Will Find Its Way; 2 - Weaving Your Destiny; 3 - New Beginnings.
Is vector art art ...?
New Beginnings Part 1: Life Will Find Its Way.
One of the super metaphors, The Key turned up at a very auspicious time. The original design featured a Borromean Circle but I chose to do the real world circles in the end. Serious energy art/energy magic.
This "Dolphin" is an Art Solutions symbol hybrid for recovery. Definitely one for the "Healing Art" department.
The Chalice is a super metaphor. Well worth engaging with on many different levels.
This is the 2015 rendition of a much earlier work of the same title (don't know what happened to the original painting).
Picture quotes, quotes about art, something to share on Facebook on a rainy day.
The new business logo has arrived - S is for Silvia.
"Poem Dreaming Tree" - stories, worlds, created by the dreaming mind, endless stories to be discovered.
The original version is from around 2002, during the In Serein days where we first met Sorey, the greatest story teller. In 2015, Poem Dreaming Tree came back and wanted to be one of my matrix style vectors. Is story telling making a comeback after all these years ...?
