About Silvia Hartmann
All my art is about creating energy objects which have an existence in their own right and change the atmosphere were they are, to bring the power of magic into our days.
I have also thought long about the purposes of art, what art is supposed to do for the individual, the processes of art and the purposes of art in context of humanity. My conclusions are the development of MODERN energy art, which is based on using 6 senses, rather than five. You can read more about this here: What Is Modern Energy Art?
Thank you for your time and interest! x
I create energy art which is based on the understanding that we have six senses, not just five. The 6th sense is emotion; we access this when we stand before any work of art and ask ourselves, "Where do I feel this in my body?" You can show another person with your hands where you feel it, and you can explain what it feels like.
Likewise, when I create a work of art, I use six senses to decide the shape, form and movement as well as colour. I rely on my 6th sense to give me unmistakable physical experiences to know whether something is "right," "wrong," or "spot on!" The latter produces an energy kick that feels like electricity rushing through the body.
My work is based on movement, which I represent in flowing lines and curves. These are the pathways, "leylines" through which the energy of the work of art is flowing. I make these lines clearly visible in the Symbol Paintings and the Symbol Hybrid Paintings; in abstract energy art, you need to sense them as well.
The pathways create the movement, and all the pathways together create an energy matrix. The work of art is an energy object, a transmitter of energy that gets stronger over time.
Making energy objects that transmit real energy into a room, and have a real impact on people's energy systems and their emotions, it seems entirely wrong to produce "Screams" - works of art that exude screams of pain, document misery or deliberately try to make people feel really bad so that at least, they "feel something" when they stand before it.
I don't want to re-state problems in my art. We all have problems, more than enough already. I want to reach for creative SOLUTIONS instead. This give my art a powerful positive intention and positive energy.
Simply put, I don't want people who have posters of my art on their walls to commit suicide, get even angrier, even more depressed. I want to inspire people to reach for the solutions instead.
I deeply, deeply believe that art is our birthright as human beings. I know that engaging in the processes of art and creativity lights up people's souls, makes them happier, gives them access to a whole new world of possibility and potential.
I want people to come to my art and think, I can do this too. I want to break down the barriers that exist between true creative art and the people. To this end, I have created art projects such as The Cupcakes for paintings, and The Adventures of The Mens for sculpture.
It is my mission to invite, incite and ignite MODERN Energy Art as a movement towards a new future for all art modalities.
Directing people's attentions to their emotions, their true 6th Sense, unlocks so many different possibilities that simply didn't exist before.
It allows people to "read and write" art in a new way. Most of all, it allows us to leave the dark years of the screaming Freudian psychotherapy style "art" behind now, and move forward into art as the leader for creative solutions that can't be found in any other way.
Born 23rd of August 1959 in Detmold, Germany.
School art put me off school art, deeply and profoundly, for life. Although I have always considered myself an artist, the school art traumas convinced me to never "study" art at all.
I just wanted to DO art, and art I did do. I created my own explorations in my own art and ignored what you are supposed to do, and how you're supposed to do it. For me, art was essential for survival, precious beyond price, deeply personal and more beloved than I have words to express.
I found myself being the most artistic/creative person on numerous occasions, so early on I designed logos, book covers, illustrations, diagrams, patterns for T-Shirts, bags, mugs and all manner of things for a variety of businesses and enterprises. This went on for some decades, but I also always did art as well.
My main work was in creativity all along, and I always used my art to help me through the days, to answer questions, to mark special breakthrough insights, often to trigger them. I live and breathe visioning and I have always created my own works of art in all sorts of modalities.
In 1993, I met some arty people and they suggested I should do an exhibition of my art. I took this under advisement and had my first exhibition at PlanAhead in Eastbourne, in 1999. The traditional art people absolutely hated it, which did not surprise me in the slightest. Nor did it worry or in any way discourage me. I've done art all my life, I know exactly what I'm doing and why, so it makes no difference to me.
I continued painting and evolving my art, and my own theories on what art is, how it works, what it's for and what you can do with it. But I didn't exhibit again for a long time.
Eleven years later, in 2010, I showed my then latest paintings, this time to a group of energists at the EMO conference. Now here were some people who were not art critics and they "got it" what I was doing. This was encouraging.
It got me thinking about art, and the huge disconnect between art, creativity and "real life."
In 2011, I had the "Primal Art" vision, and this led me to thinking that I should show my art, and encourage other people to re-visit the topic of art, magic and creativity, to truly re-think what they had been told, and to repair the damage that had been done by their various forms of "art education."
Art is for the people. It's a human birthright. It is a travesty that you don't get to do art unless you have been to University and learned all manner of crafty tricks so you can call yourself "an artist." Art is NOT craft, it has nothing to do with it. It's something else altogether, and I stand by that.
In 2014, I had decided that I wanted to sell some paintings. To bridge into that, I made some special art objects codenamed "The Cupcakes." These were the first paintings I've ever sold. And it so happened that in my home town of Eastbourne, East Sussex, a new studio gallery opened, and I was invited to be a part of the first group exhibition, Atmosphere.
I also started the Facebook group, Art 4 Energists, toward the end of 2014. The first group exhibition was Solstice 2014, entitled "We are HERE."
In 2015, I started an art project called The Adventures of the Mens, which was essentially an extension of The Cupcakes - creating "bite sized art" that makes people happy, rather than scare and intimidate them. This was and is a lot of fun on many different levels.
In 2016, I decided it was time to stand up as an artist as well as a modern art theorist. I acquired EnergyArt.uk and set about sorting out my art history in order to lay the foundations for the next step of the energy art unfoldments.
So that's my resume up to November, 2016.
I'm an artist, and my art is magical in nature.
I stand by it, and that's all I can do.
Oh, and, of course, evolve. And celebrate the joy of art which is endless, infinite, and the greatest blessing.
