LIFE in and through the human body. Stunning. I am grateful to you in your important work to remind us that we have not been condemned (as the conditioning goes) to have physical bodies, but rather we are blessed.

Steve,
Excellent detail with the art work!
However, I must say the genitalia was a little much (shocking) for me. I know we all have genitalia, but perhaps my feelings stem back from Adam and Eve after eating the forbidden fruit. It was then that they covered their "private" parts. I realize the human body is beautiful and full of positive and negative energy, but thank goodness for the unseen (and especially clothing) as we go about everyday life. Am I missing something here? Any insight you can give is greatly appreciated.
Light and Energy....

Anonymous,
Thank you for the very good question. (Is this Anonymous #2?) Your viewpoint is quite valid. I very much enjoy feedback so I appreciate your sharing. After all, one reason I make art is so it can be shared and reflected upon by others.

For me, there is a sort of process of accepting and exploring that involves an honest look at the body and my feelings about it. The body's relation to the unseen is important as well which I think has manifest as beauty in this series of works. I am proud to say that Art has been a vehicle for facilitating that relationship of body to feelings to unseen.

The creating of this work has brought home a deeper acceptance of body and even beyond into receiving self-love.

These are some of my thoughts on the work, thanks again for your excellent question.

Hi Steve!
All energies have a function and purpose in the Universe.
These energies we cannot see with eyes of the body, but only with the eyes of the soul.
Steve, you've been blessed with the opportunity to see these "subtle energies".

Wishing you the best of life!

Hi Steve,
Yes this is anonymous #2. I don't have a blogger or google account. Thanks for the insight. It was difficult for me to understand (just by viewing) where you, the artist, was coming from/expressing through the brillance of your art. It is truly amazing how your art portrays life in a state that would otherwise not be physically possible (dissection that is).

I feel so honored everyone. Thank you for your comments today - Eileen, Krystyna, Pink Ginger, Anonymous and David.

I guess I am wanting to find a more solid and substantial place to show my art. The internet is not enough now. So I plan to put more energy into finding a gallery or other physical outlet for my work in the coming weeks. Don't forget me, I will update at some point I am sure. All Good things everyone!

Hi Steve!
Please let us know if you find a gallery or galleries for your work. I would love to view it in person. I can imagine the pictures via the internet probably doesn't give your work the justice it fully deserves and/or has versus viewing it in person. I heard a gallery is opening in Old Town in Albuquerque by "La Hacienda" restaurant. Most galleries in Old Town tend to be southwestern, but your art could provide variety for potential buyers. I will say some prayers for you. Also, have you ever considered publishing your art work as illustrations in an atlas of human anatomy? This could enable you to still do something you love (but less creative of course), but enable you to make some money to continue your dream. I wish you the very best of luck.
