Painting "Spirit of the Cosmos". 18.07.2017.
The meaning of the work:
The "Spirit of the Cosmos" includes rather strict and clear sense of the key integral understanding about the Space. In fact, this work of contemporary art will reflect the concept of Eternal Philosophy on the basis of great traditions of world’s wisdom. According to the Eternal Philosophy, reality is the Great Holarchy (Holon is something that is both a whole in itself and a part of something else) of being and consciousness, stretching from matter and life to mind and Spirit. Each dimension is superior and includes previous ones. The Spirit of the Space is depicted in the form of a conducive ghostly human figure with arms spread out to one side as a sign of openness and involvement in everything that is happening here and now. The center of the figure symbolizes the understanding of the Void (Buddhist term Emptiness does not refer to the nihilistic view of the world, but only implies the presence and existence of everything at a deeper level of unity devoid of something either independent or detached) while the figure itself reflects the understanding that " Emptiness is form, and the form is emptiness. " (The form that exists before we project our concepts onto this phenomenon, this is the original state of "what is", "what is here." The form may be the moon, mountains, bright sun or a pile of garbage. These things are what they are, and they are the same thing). The fabric cover of the Spirit symbolizes the understanding that all conceivable forms, as well as the essence of all being, are the pattern and manifestation of the Spirit itself in the development process.
The staircase pyramid consisting of 5 levels reflects the understanding of the Eternal Philosophy of the Great Holarchy. Step number 1 symbolizes Matter. Step number 2 is Life. Step number 3 is Mind. Step number 4 is Soul. Step number 5 symbolizes Spirit. Each level includes the previous one and then adds its own qualities - qualities that the previous dimension did not have. The highest level is the Spirit. The Spirit transcends everything and includes everything.
