Episode one: introduction, insight and téchne

'I don't know where to start." This approach is the best start for the ART OF SPIRIT. Creating with spirit means parking the personality; not having to suffer it in the creative act. Embracing intuition is an art. Stepping aside with one's opinions and feelings equally so.
THE ART OF SPIRIT sacrifices without regret, protagonisms and egocentrisms to make room for a manifestation without subjective circumferences.

Questions to insiders:

  • What would you, the artist, create by getting all your cognitive baggage out of the way?
  • What would you create if you let go of your idea of physical body, emotional body, mental body, soul body?
  • What creation can be accomplished, can happen in your absence?
  • Who/What intuitively in-forms the vacuum you create?

I will read you an excerpt from artist Yves Klein's Dialogue with Myself: "When one thinks, one is often not inspired. Inspiration is thought plus something else, plus the appearance of the spirit. This strange spirit cannot be said, in short, not to exist. Even if you are materialistic, it exists. It is a favorable moment. Perhaps a favorable organic moment. Suddenly everything goes right [...]."

This audio was created with the intention of opening a dialogue with creative people and art lovers.
For years I have been working on a four-step téchne to foster a-centr-ism, that is, the absence from any centralizing ism. This practice has led me "out of the blue" -- to the ART OF THE SPIRIT. An art that transcends the very "need" to have to create.

The Phase I of acentrism, in artistic expression is grattage as a cathartic act: "neither this, nor that."
Returning to the whiteness of the canvas, after painting it and subsequently stripping it of color, impasto, and the brushstroke itself... brings to mind the monk's gesture as he unravels the mandala.

If you would like to know more about this first phase you can find all the information on my website.
Thank you for your kind attention.

"In the ART OF THE SPIRIT all vehicles are in communication/communion, from the most earthly to the most heavenly.
The causal body (abstract mind) is receiving, like a container or screen, on which the VOICE OF THE SPIRIT becomes imagination."
Lighting table no. 1
  • Observe the image, breathing deeply and above all, relaxing the body. Do not be in a hurry to "do." The exercise is intended to highlight "the auspicious moment," the moment when creation happens spontaneously, without effort or pretension.
  • Continuing the creation of a di-Sign brings us into deep relationship and listening.
  • Wait for the eye (if you stare at the computer) or hand to move following its own impulse and not directed by your will.
  • Let the hand know what is needed. Don't force yourself, creAtion has its own beginning motion, you need to "be silent" to recognize it, not to anticipate it with personality.
  • It is not a matter of aesthetics-doing well or something beautiful and special-no, here we need to enter a flow with softness: without judgment, expectation or confirmation.
  • Being in the movement and the movement itself. Wu Wei, action without action ( No character acts. The artist, with all his connotations and merits is absent, deliberately absent.
  • The drawing ends when you "feel" that the talk is over, that nothing more needs to be added; perhaps tomorrow or in two hours, you can still integrate a line, a detail-this happens when you make OFF on the character to allow for greater expansion of self, or rather, the Self.
Anyone wishing to submit their own Lighting Tables, inspired by the di-sign of Exercise 1, this site is happy to give visibility with relevant caption (your name, title, year).
The project has no deadline.
