I AM (an artist of the) SPIRIT

Artist statements and exhibitions

“Phases. One stage after another until I reach realization-Action: my real, authentic action, independent of having to appear or demonstrate and any other centralizing “-ism” or philosophy. Simply being, without filters or frills. Being, even artist.”

Firma MYA bianca su trasparente

THE ART OF THE SPIRIT is the goal I have achieved and still feel I am pursuing.

Not necessarily immaterial or conceptual art, but creativity aligned in my entire being: physical-etheric, emotional or astral, mental, causal or soul-related, spiritual.

The Integral Alignment of the earthly and celestial vehicles has brought voluntary connection and coherence with the superconscious over the years.

From this cohesion flows righteousness, well-being, integrity, and even focus, which becomes as easy as opening oneself up to intuitive grace; no longer a sporadic state, but a modus operandi, stemming from knowing how to predispose oneself at every existential level, avoiding the filter of personality.

The initial research has become, over time and with practice, a téchne that includes different means of expression: painting, light art, digital art, video art, and performance—none in the foreground.

Before approaching the artistic expression of SPIRIT, I went through four personal and creative phases over several years, described in my diary and manifesto without circumferences, “Acentrism”, published by BellatiEditor in 2007.

Acentrism is not the absence of a central core, as one might prima facie believe. It is the voluntary renunciation of ‘centralising isms’ the progressive resetting of pre-constituted circumferences: false selves, deceptive forms, repetitive patterns, and conditioning.

In practice, I scraped the paintings back to the blank canvas and burnt drawings and thoughts until I felt the fragrance and noise of emptiness.

I chased vertical alleys and crossed circu(mstance)s before glimpsing the light.

The Light became a progressive presence and an all-pervasive atmosphere that I learnt to recognise and glimpse between the folds/creases of matter. The Immaterial became perceptible over time, and thanks to the analysis of Yves Klein’s Manifesto, I attended the Rosicrucian Studies Group for several years, as Klein himself was a student at Oceanside in California.

In the ebook Out of the Blue: Yves Klein’s immaterial meets acentrism, which can be downloaded for free from my website, I trace the Rosicrucian interpretation of his Manifesto, also narrated in part by critic Thomas McEvilley in his book Yves the Provocateur. Yves Klein and Twentieth-Century Art.

In the years since, the ebook has grown, becoming a public document of my artistic-spiritual quest, from Acentrism to the Immaterial, inspired by Yves Klein, to the ART OF THE SPIRIT.

Yes, it is written in all caps because some mindsets still get inhibited by the word Spirit alone; however, theological references, philosophies, and esotericisms

are irrelevant.

THE SPIRIT in us is super partes substance, beyond duality, universal, but also extra-ordinary, outside the usual (short)circuit of personality: mask or interface, whatever.

To operate – to do works – of and with the SPIRIT means to create at every level of one’s existence.

Acquiring the personality, making it receptive and osmotic to that of a subtler order, establishes communion and communication with the SPIRIT. Primarily, one consolidates the essential relationship and guidance. Over time, one lives as one: integrated.

THE ART OF SPIRIT is an expression of this state of consciousness.
