Print Operas sparkles like gems and gold, they dance and takes flight like music, they sings with the highest and lowest ranges of color and shade, they delve and dive deeply into the collective consciousness bringing forth energetic statements of ancient themes with futuristic echoes. They are “Operas of the Soul”. This is the color version of the series.
The first two volumes of the Print Opera series of digital paintings were Two Women Contemplating the Nature of the Universe: Print Operas BW and Print Operas (Color). This is Volume 3 and is titled, Two Women, Three Flamingoes and a Pooch: Print Operas. It is the color version of the book.
Abstract art is just that – abstract. However, for me it is fun to see the "stract" in the “ab-stract.” While I was creating the series, my two women made an encore performance in a new painting. When I looked at the original painting of Two Women Contemplating the Nature of the Universe, I was surprised to see what appeared to be two figures in the lower left hand corner looking up at the rest of the painting. They looked female. This time they reappeared in the lower right hand corner of the painting and brought along three flamingoes and their pooch. It looks like they enjoy walking around. Perhaps it is a multi-colored cocker spaniel? In the previous volumes these two women, (I will let your imagination run wild as to their identity,) shared their unbridled opinions on the paintings in a humorous manner. For this volume, they respectfully requested to assume a serious demeanor. After all, they did not want you the reader, to walk away thinking that everything is a joke. So herein, they convey their sincere and serious thoughts and feelings about this new series of Print Operas. But, then again, what is serious to some may be quite humorous to another…
We art what we are. When I look at the Print Opera series I can see, the technology, the healing energetics, the music, the dance, the luminosity of gems, and the brilliance of metals. All of which echo elements of my experience. It was also much to my surprise when I began to see other things in them too. The seemingly random moments in time and space when synthesized together appeared to whisper and hint at archetypal shapes, dimensional forms and even some stories unfolded. At first I thought that I was creatively fantasizing, but when others, without prompt saw such too, I knew that this was not a subjective experience.
Receptive viewers were entranced by the art experience, as they were absorbed into the Print Opera sequence. They found the experience to be an opportunity of heightened visual excitement coupled with being momentarily transported to a space outside their own. Subsequent viewings were opportunities for a discovery of new aspects which were previously unseen. For me stationary, visual art is a mini-vacation. Like watching a film, you leave your present circumstances and travel elsewhere, even if only for a few moments. To me, the more successful the work, the longer you can stay in it and revisit it over and over again. After having created these works, it was much to my surprise and pleasure to see that so many of the diverse influencing aspects of my life could come together the way they did.
Thank you for visiting my literary art gallery yet again. For the first time visitor, you are invited to visit Volumes 1 and 2 of Two Women Contemplating the Nature of the Universe, and most importantly. Enjoy.
