The Living Force
You exactly wrote what I am thinking too.nemo said:I have to say that I find it very difficult to get into this flow state. It`s really hard work. How this pertains to Gurdjieff I have no idea!
When I draw I NEED to get in a somewhat dissociated state. The VERY LAST thing I need when drawing is my intellectual centre.
It`s important when conceptualising, but during actual drawing/painting the intellect/ratio is anathema. Drawing, as all creative work, osit, might be a kind of channeling. One may open a channel to ???, from where creative stuff gets channeled through one`s mind and then expressed through the filter of the person`s biography, mindset, believe systems/lack of etc
It's not something that I can control either, I am in "the zone" or I am not.
Trying to be creative on command is the craziest idea ever, try telling that to clients !!
I think that it might be some form of channeling indeed, but depending on the potential development or the orientation of the person, the artworks will take a different form, hence the either very negative or positive vibe you could feel or see ?
But some artworks that might appear negative might as well be talking about the reality as it is and the positive just keep pushing the same lies.
Context is king.
Check out this artist Hilma_af_Klint and her gallery over Here .
she was channeling messages with her group "the five", despite having a very Christian bent, the messages and the paintings are very interesting imho.
