Writing in landscape
landscapes write in you... J Halifax
Creating art is a gift and these works as
an art form strive to become artifacts, creations calling forth an intoning of
a visual ambiance of the sacred.
works are a remix or hyper content that is to say a conjoining of works or
found images, mosaics of bits broken away from other works and refitted,
juxtaposed from my own experience. They explore the active inner creative
nature as story telling in a neo-urban world … as iconic
graphical montages that induce inquiry, questions about identity, belonging,
suffering, mortality, awakening, human relations and one’s relation to planes
of hidden reality.
that are influenced as a creative commons sans borders. An evolving collective
of image formation without ownership or restriction, an open range of imagery
with no fences, only open grazing landscapes. The image palette as the stuff of
pre-consciousness, embedded primordial matter, walls, decay, a Wabi-Sabi (Japanese
world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience, as
impermanence and imperfection.) As creative flows
as magical and mysterious territory (landscapes) of subjectivity. These
inscapes as narratives strive at being condensed in rare aesthetic beauty,
allied forces of fictional elements in close proximity to the narrative.
Newer works are urbanized In-scapes, a form
of magic theatre that flows from within my Hispanic colonial catholic rearing
and interest in the passion and suffering depicted in religious iconography, as
well as pre-colonial religious tinted by an anglo-ized mythology.
As re-mixes these works contain layers teasing
out a mystic reverence to what is called
the IMAGINAL realms of creative imagination. Images have properties that invoke
in-sight. Similar to craftsman artist share an intimacy with image and symbol.
The historian of science Cyril Smith points to relational imagery, it was
craftsmen and not scientists who first understood the properties of out metals,
“it was the human metalworkers’ intense intimacy with their material that
enabled them, rather than (the less hands-on) scientists, to be the ones to
first discover the polycrystalline structure of non-organic matter.” And so it is with artist and viewer. So our

Epstein’s Hyper - authorship model “I
also can imagine a journal (i.e work ) inviting the contributions of
transpersonal authors/artists and elaborating the theory of hyper-authorship.
The title might be TBA meaning - trans
biological authorship - and at the same time - To Be Announced - an abbreviation
for something that has not yet and perhaps never will be determined”. As Non local borrowing of a magical active
“Now let's have done with the reductive
concept of authorship as only "biological" authorship limited by the
input ofthe author as a living individual.
There are many sorts and degrees of non-biological--psychological,
intellectual, inspirational, magical authorship” from Yasusada by Mikhail Epstein
NADAZUL IS DEVOTED to a :
Vision to create with the eyes of evolving Intelligence healing energies
Mission to submerge into the realms of new Visual languaging for healing
Purpose to enrich lives through creating luminous healing states and spaces
Its purpose as bring to the forefront of healing arts the art of inner healing dimensions.
It is masterfully stated byDt Suzuki
"when an art presents in a most profound and creative manner, it moves us to the depth of our being; art then becomes a divine work."
The greatest production of art, whether painting, music, sculpture or poetry, have invariably through imagination / imagery this quality, something approaching the work of God. The artist healer, at the moment when her creativeness is at its height, is transformed into an agent of the creator. This supreme moment in the life of an artist, of the shaman, of the practitioner, of the healer.
The Art of healing is something
greater and higher
than our own adroitness
and although produced
by human hands, is not
created by these hands
alone, but by something
which wells up from a deeper
source in our souls"
