From Africa with LOVE from Iboga to the wedding chapel ..February 1, 2015
here are some recent photos of my RIGHT OF PASSAGE ..INITIATION into the BWITI … and MY REAL WEDDING .. ILOVE IT ENJOY..
to better explain these pieces .. is nothing more than LOVE …coming from a balanced perspective hence the fact that both polarities exist and are not going any where … so the main question is ..which frequency or polarity are you working from chor boogie??? …. let me explain .. i needed a new approach to my life art and skill which all could run in the same context of life art skills.. so me and my wife went to Costa Rica to experience the plant medicine IBOGA.. from a shaman from Africa named Patrick Moughenda a 10th generation bwiti shaman from his homeland in Gabon Africa… see i was getting real complacent in my life and slipped back into past lessons that included addiction .. like i said i needed a change .. my wife and i went to Costa Rica and partook in this traditional ceremony with Moughenda.. this was two sessions of intense internal reality checks that was very gradient … it started from the darkness and brought me to the light …i spoke with my inner self/soul my family.. some that have past away… some living and experienced a multidimensional facet of nature experiences understanding where we really come from to the point of loving me and who i am even more than i already did… things lie dormant in your body since birth and growing up in life ,,we do things to ourselves that are just not plain good … sometimes we need a reset button ..that was the experience i had .. i seen darkness/demons from with in ..to celestial angels when i came to the light … questions where asked about past present and future …but yesterday is history tomorrow is a mystery today is a gift ..that’s why we call it the present … but when it comes to my career as an artist i had to know… my question was ” Am i going to be apart of arts history” the answer was “YES” out loud… see the medicine doesn’t bull shit ..just straight direct answers ..that TELL THE TRUTH.. as the shaman puts it.. so this leads into my recent style i created …
As i was in vision coming from a gradient dark to light ..in other pretenses is the same way i create when i work from color gradient’s… darkest to light… as i was participating in uplifting my life through iboga ..in the internal sessions i turned into some sort of LOVEMAN superhero and was battling these dark forces with in and was throwing these warm hearts around all through my mind ..my heart ..my body and the feeling started as a cold feeling when it was negative and hate and fear was involved .. but as i was healing my self with these hearts the temperature would rise to a warm feeling ..which is LOVE.and would overcome those negative feelings. i was shown loving my self from within is the way .. yeah you may say ..ahh i feel that way naturally .and i used to say that … but once i really understood love through this container called iboga that gave me a WAKE UP CALL ..i really understood that i didn’t love my self ..thought i did .. because of just that ..THOUGHT ..my love was more in my head… in my brain ..than in my actual heart .. so now i think from my heart rather than my brain …my mind doesn’t control me i control my mind.. this all leads to the actual love into my paintings… as the shaman says.. “you just keep painting “.. so when it comes to the actual hearts in my paintings its the heart movement .. the actual movement of the hearts .. with in each piece the hearts are moving from the minds eye or consciousness or the hearts eyes of consciousness through multidimensional emotional landscapes of melodic symphonies through color therapy ..this all from my visions ..in each series i create all that relates to my visions … the way i seen women as celestial goddesses that i needed to respect as though my journeys in the dark side i was disrespecting women treating them like pieces of meat womanizing them.. now i see them as the ultimate mothers so far more closer to mother earth than we/men think .. birth rights i call it … its not putting anyone on a pedestal its putting them/us beyond the distractions its putting us on that higher frequency we need to operate from ..Einstein said it best if we operated from the utmost capacity and percentage that are brains are capable of we would be some sort of celestial beings… i honestly think we just need to add HEART to that as well then we can increase it further..
this is not taking away from but adding to my color therapy style …/purgatory style
/modern hieroglyphic style..simply because it feeds into the balance of things .. some people want to see love some people want to see hate.. my purpose is to combine the two basically to WAKE UP… there is no right or wrong .. but like i said there are frequencies to operate from ..i do just that .. tapping into that percentage of my heart mind body soul to basically SHARE with the world love is truth truth is love..from which my visions showed me in bright big words the word SHARE..LOVE …TRUTH
Nature elements in the each piece as well are a must like boogie birds in representation of the animals and flowers reason being is that honestly nature is an element of what we are made of … …so when it comes to the balance the yin and yang the dark and light ..i have creations that come from darkness now i have creations that come from the lightness .. i always said real art is the inner reflection of each individual artist…a visual mirror being painted ..painting the visual mirror… as you can see when the creations are made for a mere show and tell.. another reason the heart is painted white or light is because when it comes to perspectives of color therapy and i asked the shaman why they painted them selves in white he said .. white resembles light resembles the shine ..black resembles invisible ..not necessarily a bad thing its just invisible light and dark/mind ..red resembles the blood flowing through your veins/sex .. blue resembles the air we breath/lungs green/brown resembles the earth orange/yellow resembles the fire the gold/sun /birth/voice purple/white resembles the heart … reasons are for reasons are for everything .. i detoxified my life in this pursuit of happiness ..internal happiness i found ..with love/hate lessons combined along with my color therapy journey as i truly found the meanings of certain colors to happily saying that… I AM AWAKE..
as we begin the moments of here and now together we will share the love and when each of us becomes a pure instrument then love is made manifest in man
