An Energy Body

An Energy Body
(Front and Back views), Paint, Ink and Collage Element on Plexiglas, 8 x 5 inches, 2007


This is one of many artworks I am making on Plexiglas now, so they have 2 sides that can be viewed. This one has a collaged or cut out printed image of a body with internal structures. As I like to do, I transform that "physical" body to an "energy" body on the other side of the piece. Maybe this is healing... definitely expanding awareness to energy.

This is kind of a quick sketch, I am working on more in depth works now.. I'll post more of these kind of 2-sided works when I get good pics!

Hi Steve

But, I will keep on visiting you on my break.

Once amaze me with your creations....this is wonderful!
I am always so moved by your art!
Take care, Steve.

Hi Meenu,
Thank you for your optimism about my art! I am learning to be optimistic each moment. Thank you for visiting me again. Glad to see you.

Hi, thanks for your special visit to my blog. I always appreciate your visits. You are one of my first and best blogger friends. :^) Glad you are taking a break to do what you need and want. I am honored that you will continue to visit me. Thank you very much.

I really like it. It sort of contrasts the old school (Grey's Anatomy type diagram) with the new school (energy and holism).

Your portrayals of the body serve as great reminders that we are actually quite vibrant and beautiful beings!

This makes me think of Seven's recent post on energies. Everything is energy, and the perception of anything depends on one's own frame of reference. Your work here is marvelous, showing different views of the same center of energy. Very nice, Steve.

Steve, I really like it, especially the 2nd one.
Again, your quick sketch is already so define.
I admire your creativities.

Steve said...

Thanks for your comment. It is quite perceptive about the origins and influences of my art. Hopefully, the combined two make a more complete vision.

A lovely comment. And a wonderful thing to remember!

I'll have to check 7's blog. Thanks for sharing and welcome back!

Pink Ginger,
Good to see you again. Thanks for your compliments. I am very glad that you enjoyed!

There are many ways to heal, many ways to serve and many ways to love.

Hey, thanks for stopping by. I really like that body. I've recently done a plaster cast of the left side of my torso, and I've been contemplating how to decorate it. Just yesterday I decided I'm going to do some sort of radiating energy streaks or flames from the stomach up and down the curves. I do think it's healing, for me, though I don't really know what I'm recovering from exactly...

Steve said...

Welcome, glad you visited. I am happy to hear your very nice comment. Thank you. I will stop by your blog soon. Best wishes!

Hi and thank you for the great quote by Voltaire. I feel very wonderful sharing my art and I appreciate your kind words. I enjoyed your blog very much and will visit again.

Glad you visited and thank you for the comment. Your art and plan sounds very good. Sometimes I think the process and materials the artist feels good about bring about more good feelings for the artist. I enjoyed my visit to your blog and will stop by again soon.

I love the idea of doing your artwork on the back - I've never heard of anyone doing that before! And it works just great!
