I am/was hardly known in my life time
(apart from a few thousand on Facebook,
Instagram, my 2 blogs - wordpress and Google,
as I live as an hermit
(withdrawn from all social , especially art, life.
I just paint, paint and paint,
and of course reflect
(write philosophy and sociology of
culture, art and just living).
I create, as I live, as if there is no human being who interferes, intervenes, creates (paints) - as if everything just happens, ‘just is’ - like water flows, the ocean, a tree grows (or dies) in the forest, like light creates colors, gravity and other natural forces.
Like Zen buddhists, Christian and other mystics, Jains, Sufis - we just leave everything as we find it.
This is what all arts have ever attempted to do. But, especially and more specifically so-called
modern, contemporary and (post-) post-modern art, Critical Theory, (post) deconstruction attempt to, and all philosophy tried to depict by means of reflection on first order existence -
as if, it merely mirrors and reflects what it comes across.
Now these creatives are aware (reflect on and develop this) of this
attitude, this way of life, of 'just being',
previously most artists were unaware of this,
mystics of all religions always knew about - just oned, being one with the All,
alone with the great Alone (Godhead, the one real Self of Vedanta, Zen's
Buddhamind, the Father of Jesus, etc etc).
