"My creations can broadly be deemed as psychedelic; psyche, meaning soul, and delos, meaning manifest. When titling this site, to further encode my intentions, I traded the word Soul (source of being) for Sol (sun). Through this I am eluding to Plato’s allegory of the cave, in which the sun is a metaphor for ultimate reality. The double indication of the word, is a tip of my hat to the long running heritage of monist philosophy in the Eastern, Middle Eastern, and Western traditions.
Philosophy as my point of departure; I roam into the arts, poetry, and music, to creatively express otherwise intangible concepts. My influences range from Huichol yarn paintings and medieval alchemical engravings to poster art and computer generated fractals. There is no period of human history which escapes my interest. For, in all times and across all cultures, can be seen the propensity toward transcendent thought and the colorful culture inspired by inner visions."
Artists I like
Unknown, Venetian Snares, Tool, Bosch, Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, Wisp, Theo Leung, Patrick Donmoyer, Bluetech, Folks, Schon Wanner, Deric Hettinger
hi eric, thank you for the invitation,sorry i react abit late, i think i couldnt get to your site at the time you invited me and i forgot..god consciousness shows itself to me in many ways...one day it is a light that seems to shimmer behind everything, carries all, another time it is a joy that springs up in the heart from nowhere for no apparent reason...stay true to yourself...
That is how I would take it too, Eric, until I find out myself those are very interesting concepts :-)
