About the Blog

In 1993 Christina Beckenäs founded The Academy of Symbolism in Art. Read more: http://symbolisminart.com. As a symbolist Christina believe that art apprehends more absolute truths which could only be accessed indirectly. Thus, the painted and sculptured scenes from nature, human activities, and all other real world phenomena in a highly metaphorical and suggestive manner. The paintings and sculptures provide particular images or objects with esoteric attractions.On this blog you can read about Christina and other artists´works of art, interesting ideas and cultural events.

En riktigt GOD & Fridfull JUL önskar jag dig med ett par nymålade akvareller smiley.
De beskriver en stark inre upplevelse av "att vara ett" med naturen. Motiven är hämtade från mitt besök/Tjurpannans Naturreservat i Bohuslän, den 1:a november.
Bild 1: bor i New York City/USA.
Bild 2: bor i Göteborg/Sverige.

Bifogar en video, som förhoppningsvis förmedlar känslan av denna vackra plats på jorden.
