Energy Art Essays - Writing About Energy Art
One of the MEA apprentices asked the question, "I was looking at one of my paintings on the wall the other day and had this sense that it wasn't finished! But it's signed ... What should I do?"
On an art group, a struggling artist asked, "What should I paint? What sells the best? Subject? Canvas size? Media? Colours? Style? Please help for I am desperate to sell something ...

What is Modern Energy Art? Modern Energy Art explained.
One of the core features of Modern Energy Art is definitely "the breaking down of the old barriers." Normal people are shockingly disconnected from art - from doing art (you need to be brainwash ... ahem, you need to study first for god alone knows how long before you get to call yourself an artist), to owning original art (that's only for rich/crazy people) and so many others beside.

Modern Energy Art Solutions is when the modern energy artist takes charge of their processes of creativity, and uses them to deliberately create a work of art that is the SOLUTION to a problem.
This puts the artist in charge of what they want to experience in the process of creating a work of modern energy art.

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.
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 ...

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.
Is vector art art ...?
I have been unhappy with Ars Gratia Artis for a long time - art for art's sake. WTF is that supposed to mean, anyway? It is at best a step stone to a more grown up understanding of art in the greater scheme of things, both intrapersonally as well as interpersonally. At worst, it becomes a crazy labyrinth that causes havoc for the individuals and societies who adopt this position.

I am an artist and an energist. I can get very emotional about my art. Of course, I would. But some of these emotions are indicative of injuries in the energy system, and more than that.
Missing events - missing memories - might be far more to blame ...
There are some artists among us who don't not sell art because nobody wants to buy it, but because they don't want to or cannot "let go of their art."
I am one of them - but I think today I have found the solution on how the let a work of art go to another person, on its own journey, as it were.

Art is for everyone, not just the chosen few who have spent decades learning the secrets of craft in the lofty towres of academia. To make meaningful art, you need passion and an understanding how to translate what you want to share with the world into material objects.
Here is a set of very modern energy art exercises to get you started with your own True Creative Art.
Doing art badly ... that's one of my favourite topics and a rant I can do for hours on any street corner you could put me on, anywhere in the world.
Right. The basic form is this. Art is a human birthright. Everyone has the right to dance, sing, sculpt, paint, write, carve, cast bronze as badly as they want to.
Now here's an interesting thing. How much do you love your own art? Honestly now. I know we have been entrained, brainwashed, "to be our own worst critic" on the grounds that this will make you into a better person as you berate yourself endlessly, search for all things imperfect and beat yourself up for any little shortcoming.
I think that's completely appalling and in fact, a path straight into the abyss of failure - and not just for art, but for life.

Art is a very personal journey. And every so often, there are these priceless experiences that one really can't put into words. I guess that's the difference between painting and sculpting and writing about after the fact ...
At any rate, whilst working on the "Damien Hirst" symbol painting, I had a moment of revelation ...
