Now is the time to redefine high art and bring it down to earth.
What is art that works? Surely art that moves us, shifts us, leads us into the mystery is art that works?
Can we embrace high art by literally learning to get ‘high’ on it, using the yoga of beauty to enter new realms of consciousness? Can we invoke higher perceptions through a daily practice of contemplating art? Is this the time to appreciate art in a deep and intimate manner?
Art reflective of the shamanic or hallucinatory journey is ‘high’ art. So is art that emerges from the nous in a state of surrender.
To enter the unknown requires a loosening of the boundaries that delimit you from others. It is not that you become other, but that you become other-ized, re-calibrated and vibrationally altered. This may only be temporary, but a split second of altered awareness can revitalize your system.
A sea-change can happen in a flash.
