The Artist Edition. Commission for DJ Tristans album cover ” Way of Life ”
The circle in the square represents spirit into matter, as encapsulated in the Ventruvian man .
The landscape is a whirling Torus energy field, the shape of future renewable energy technology as shown in the movie ” Thrive ” ( Its interesting that most Trance dance floor shade structures are built in this shape, raising euphoric energy with the crowd. )
The Ventruvian man blasts into the painting in a flaming comet, auspicious Jupiter, unstoppable vehicle of Ganesha. He is inside a peaceful meditating head of Sophia, feminine wisdom of the universe, She has Aries rams horns ( completed on the Aries lunar eclipse,) and Ayahuasca vines & musical sound waves emanate from her ears. The whole painting is a giant Eye of consciousness, the flames of the comet also describe the iris of an eye, circled by the Dzogchen rainbow, representing the I am presence. Eye am that I Am.
The punchline of this painting, that I only realised at the end, is that the apple, which is sacred to so many mythologies , ( Apples of Avalon ) is a Torus shape, & contains within its core the 5 seeds of the pentagram star, which can be drawn on the ventruvian man, invoking spirit into matter. Thus this painting is a prayer for the evolution and positive energy flow of Humanity.
