Symbolism in Art

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. Pax Profundis! Pax Cultura!

3-D Painting or Sculpture or ?

My/Christina goal here and on facebook is...
... to inspire you in your own creativity. Play like a child!
I continue, tirelessly, to create 3D sculpture-pictures with LED lighting.
This painting is not yet completely. I´ve been created it for several years. I´m not in a hurry, as you probably already understand.
All those small steps smiley...



The very beginning (2010 - .......):

The Golden Heart Torso

I feel so relieved that my idea "The Golden Heart" has been created in a sculpture.

You Tube-video will come soon in two parts. Part 1 finished torso & Part 2, the process of creating sculpture.
I love creativity :-)!

Den SKAPANDE KRAFTEN= GULD!

SculpturesPosted by Christina Beckenäs Wed, February 15, 2012 13:53:37

Så här ser skulpturen ut i skenet av 1, av 14 möjliga belysningar. Skulpturen tog ca 2 månader att kreera (om man jämför med ett heltidsarbete) och var tänkt att ställas ut i maj 2012 (inhiberad utställning).
Den skapande, drivande kraften ... bara ÄR. Den tänker aldrig på makt, pengar, titlar eller att visas publikt via konstutställningar m.m.
Den Skapande KRAFTEN vill manifesteras IRL (jmf. med Åke Göranssons konstnärskap/konstmuseet i Göteborg). I vårt samhälle, som det ser ut idag, är det svårt.... mycket svårt... för många människor att kontakta det som ÄR (varandet, Flow...) & KRAFTEN. Hjälp dig själv och andra att finna denna skatt och att berika världen med dess energi. På så sätt finner vi både Glädje & Fred :-), tror jag.

Närbild "Ägget"
Eldfilosofen simmar i det universella äggets medvetandehav. En immanent & transcendent resa :-).
